Excellent local government reporting

By Julianne Couch,  Decorah

Dear Editor,

I wish to express my appreciation for your coverage of local government, from city council to community boards and other groups. I am a newcomer to Winneshiek County. As such I need some context and background to fully appreciate why particular actions are taken and how various constituent groups are affected by these actions.

Zach Jensen’s article “Following public hearing, supervisors unanimously vote to reject bids on Freeport property” is an example of what I consider excellent local government reporting. From it, and from stories leading up to it, I understand what is being discussed, who it affects, and what is at stake. Jensen’s reporting places complex local issues on the front page, where they firmly belong.
