Local news is important; support The Herald’s journalism

Thanks to The Herald for its informative reporting on the Bargeen family and the Port crane fiasco. Without local reporting the citizens of Everett would have probably never heard of this offensive act.

Without local news gatherers we are at the mercy of those who would not like to have their activities brought to light. The news industry is changing. Social media is favoring large news organizations, leaving community papers in danger of shutting down.

I was proud to make my first donation to The Daily Herald Investigative Journalism Initiative Fund on this first day of 2021. I believe good local reporting is extremely important in maintaining a healthy and just community. Thank you, Herald for rallying to keep Snohomish County safe from those who would prefer to act in the dark.
