Community residents join Tribune-Review Editorial Board
Community input is important as we update the Trib's editorial pages and expand residents' role in what clearly is the “voice” of their local newspapers. Today we present our redesigned Opinion pages. In line with this, we also introduce our Editorial Board for the Westmoreland edition of the Tribune-Review, which includes three members of the community who responded to the Trib's invitation to join the board. Our community representatives will serve for six months, at which time we will again invite readers to join our board.
Our goal is to initiate and enhance important conversations — in print and online — that make a difference in the lives of readers and in the communities we serve and to help make our communities better places in which to live and work.
With that goal in mind, please join us in welcoming our expanded Editorial Board:
