Letter from the editor

I feel privileged to have been entrusted with the responsibility of managing the content of your newspaper

Dear readers of The Independent,

I feel privileged to have been entrusted with the responsibility of managing the content of your newspaper for the second time in less than four years.

First and foremost, I promise to fulfill the requirements of this position in the best possible way I can.

As the staff of The Independent, we promise to work hard to bring you a newspaper that you will be looking forward to put your hands on every week.

In this effort, however, we will need your support and assistance, too.

What we do need is your engagement with us.

So, please let us know of your concerns, complaints, achievements, feel-good news as well as problems that you are aware of.

Not only is our door open to each and every member of this community, but we are also more than willing and ready to listen whatever you may have to say.

We would like to be the source of accurate information and informed opinion on what has been going on in our community and we are well aware that, to succeed in that goal, we will need to hear from you.

It is our hope that as the unusually long winter gives way to spring, we will also be able to report on the blossoming new developments in our community as well as the ongoing events that bring people together.

We believe that The Independent is in a good position to be a community hub and we are confident we can perform that function with your assistance.

Thank you,

Mustafa Eric, Editor
