This fall, local elections will be consequential. That’s why MinnPost doesn’t treat our political coverage like sports. Our nonprofit newsroom goes beyond horserace headlines and hot takes to serve as an independent, trusted guide to the candidates, dynamics, and issues that will shape the future of our communities for years.
For months, our metro reporter, Kyle Stokes, has produced unparalleled in-depth election coverage, profiling candidates, pulling insights from campaign finance reports, digging into issue positions, and creating insightful visuals that show how shifts in voting blocs on the city council could shift policies.
Critical to Kyle’s work, and our entire team, is member support. This ongoing support, which we’re honored to receive in amounts of all sizes, is the most important base of funding for our journalism – and our ability to make our journalism available to all Minnesotans for free, no paywall.
Newsrooms in other states have seen a decline in member support. Several have had to resort to layoffs to balance their budgets. Thankfully, MinnPost hasn’t been in that position.
Your support right now – truly, in any amount – will keep our team at full strength and ready to serve Minnesotans this fall and beyond with independent, paywall-free journalism. Are you with us?
P.S. I’ve been sporting my new MinnPost hat, and you can, too! As a special offer during the drive, you can get this new MinnPost ballcap with a donation of $10/month or $120. Support journalism and look good while doing it. A win-win!
