As part of our mission to serve you, your neighbors and your neighborhood, the Observer will host a series of town hall meetings to gather community input on our newspapers.
From Oct. 30 to Jan. 22, the Observer will hold meetings throughout the communities we cover. The town hall meetings will be free and open to the public.
Got something you love and want to see more of? Something you don’t like? We value your feedback, and Observer editors will be there to hear your thoughts and concerns.
“We strive to always inform, surprise and delight our readers,” said Matt Walsh, editor and CEO of the Observer Media Group. “To do that, we need to make sure we’re in sync with our communities to provide 100% local content that’s relevant and useful. This is an opportunity for readers to tell us what we’re doing well and what we can do better to meet that goal.”
