Democrat and Chronicle (2013 Archive)

In 2013, the Democrat and Chronicle afforded me the opportunity to serve as a member of its Board of Contributors. Over the course of 12 months I met with elected officials, community leaders, business owners, and everyday citizens. The experience enabled me to reach people with data-driven analyses, hard-hitting critiques of our community’s organizations and their leaders, and human-centered stories of hope, wisdom, and honesty.

These articles also served as the basis for my continued writings on Common Wealth. I continue to be grateful to the Democrat and Chronicle for providing me with the initial chance to discover my own voice and share it with the community.
