In order for a democracy to function well, the citizens need to be well-informed. Unfortunately, we are living in a time of increasingly diminishing local news coverage.

With AnnArbivore, I aim to provide unbiased coverage of the Ann Arbor Public Schools Board of Education (BOE) meetings. I am an educator by trade and by passion. From late 2012 to mid-2013, I covered the BOE for the now defunct Ann Arbor Chronicle.

I realize that while many people would like to know more about what is happening at school board meetings, they are unable to attend the meetings, which often run four+ hours. AnnArbivore is a resource for those people, providing real-time access to meeting proceedings. 

I live-blog each regular board meeting and study session. But it's difficult to sustain without support from concerned citizens like you. If the coverage I'm producing at AnnArbivore is valuable to you, please support it and share it with others. 

Thank you!

With a sustained amount of support, I will be able to attend and live-blog the Planning, Performance, and Governance committee meetings. These meetings are where actual, substantive discussion between the trustees occurs.
