Weekly council coverage

per month
How much would you spend for up-to-date information on your elected officials? The cost of a couple of lattes? Your monthly Netflix bill?

$8 per month will allow me to live-tweet Boulder City Council meetings and create a weekly newsletter summarizing that week's discussion and previewing upcoming issues.



About Boulder Beat

Boulder Beat has been covering local government and related issues for 3.5 years with a free-to-all website — — weekly emailed newsletter and active Twitter feeds, in additional to occasional special projects.

Now, we're pivoting to longform, investigative and narrative journalism to explore Boulder's big issues. Boulder Beat will publish 1-2 deeply reported stories or series each week.

$8/month will support this work and weekly content from the Boulder Beat Opinion Panel, a community editorial group. Paid subscribers will receive a weekly emailed newsletter, curated with the best local news from all area media, a recap of recent council news and a preview of upcoming action and events. 

Here's why I'm qualified to be your friendly neighborhood journalist. I have a decade of experience at magazines and newspapers, most recently six years at the Boulder Daily Camera and bylines in the Colorado Sun, New York Times and others. 

As a community-supported reporter, I answer to you. Have a question about a certain topic? Tweet me and I'll find the answer. Think I overlooked a critical perspective in my last story? Send me an email about it.

One note: Content will not be posted here, to avoid extraneous notifications. Click here to sign up for the weekly newsletter, delivered on Sunday mornings.

Thank you for your support!
