We get paid to sit in meetings and find out what’s going on behind the scenes in local government.
Our access leads to good stories, but we learn other things too.
Funny things. Embarrassing things. Details about newsworthy topics that might be more than the average reader cares to know.
If you like local politics, this blog’s for you.
The primary contributors are Andrea Damewood, who covers Vancouver city government, Stephanie Rice, who covers Clark County government and Marissa Harshman, who covers every other city and town in the county.
We’ll try to update the blog several times a week.
And about the photograph. Yes, we had permission to be in the Vancouver City Council chambers. Yes, we are looking bored on purpose because frankly (we know this might come as a shock) to be a government reporter you have to endure a lot of boring discussions.
