NORWALK, Conn. – I enjoy watching a lot of what PBS has to offer. No, I don’t watch it every day. Nancy and I did watch every day when our son was a toddler enthralled by Cookie Monster and his pals. I do still like to settle in and watch their special musical offerings. And I always get impatient when the station is running a fundraising campaign and takes those long breaks to beg for donations.
So I apologize for taking this break from the news of Norwalk to ask you to reach for the credit card or checkbook, but the situation dictates that we get another cash infusion soon if we are going to continue our mission to shine a light on the city’s government.
There are those who would like to shut that light off, and are taking action to try to make that happen. Not everyone wants you to know what the government is doing, or not doing, in your name. Those people are often involved in the very activities we are writing about – activities no one else deigns important enough to cover, stories that do more than just relay the party line – or they are supporters of those people.
If you want to keep the lights on; if you want us to keep alive the independent reporting – reporting free of partisan direction or advertiser control; if you don’t want to go back to having just one choice for your daily coverage of what is happening with your tax dollars, then please consider donating to NancyOnNorwalk. We are not a non-profit yet, so it is not tax deductible. We intend to try to remedy that situation, but we have to get over the hump and find support until we can get that status, until we can find the grants that support independent, hyper local watchdog journalism.
So please, go to that box in the upper right part of your screen and make a donation today. Our continued efforts depend on it. Or send us a check made out to Englewood Edge LLC to Nancy On Norwalk, P.O. Box 64, Norwalk, CT 06856
