Decaturish can’t do it without you

Dear readers,

The May 24 primary is almost here. Decaturish has you covered, but we need your help.

Local elections happen every year and Decaturish.com has become a go-to source for information about what’s on your ballot. We’re planning another in-depth voter’s guide for the May 24 primary election that will be free to everyone, a guide that will include Q&As with local candidates running for County Commission, School Board and our local congressional seats.

Covering elections is important, but it’s not easy and there’s a cost.  At Decaturish, those costs include paying our staff and contributors, maintaining a stable web hosting platform and producing online forums to help voters stay informed. Decaturish.com’s 1,500+ paying supporters help us get through the year, but elections add extra layers of expenses.

Doing things the right way requires money and for that, we need you! If you’ve been reading Decaturish for years but haven’t become a paying supporter, I urge you to consider doing so right now. Your support will make an immediate impact, allowing us to do our jobs without compromising our editorial independence. If you value in-depth local elections coverage, please take a moment to become a paying supporter by visiting supportmylocalnews.com 

We offer three methods of becoming a supporter: Stripe (our newest method), as well as PayPal and Venmo. Your support is critical and essential to helping us cover elections and grow our company. Thanks to your support, we’ve already hired one full-time reporter. With more supporters, we’re able to give more opportunities to journalists who are focused on telling the stories of your community. 

If you’ve considered becoming a paying supporter before, this is the time. We need you, and we can’t do this without you.
