I finally got some help in covering local issues. There has been a new conservative website launched called The Clay County Truth. http://www.claycotruth.com/
This comes from the About page on the website.
What We Do
Our goal is to provide Clay County citizens with a dependable source of information about the important issues being considered by their local & state governments. We will do this by digging deep into our local & state gov’ts. as well as contacting our area elected officials so everyone can get first hand knowledge of the particular issue we investigate. In addition, when available we will post complete copies of the Bill, Ordinance, or Resolution under discussion, how area officials voted, and the fiscal result of the passage or defeat of the issue.
In addition we plan to post information on candidates running for elected office, host candidate forums for local & state elections, conduct online polling, and potentially endorse candidates we feel will be best suited for their respective positions.
Who We Are
We are a group of Clay County citizens that believe local government is extremely important to the daily lives of all of us. To that end, we will make every effort to get each citizen more involved in the legislative process, and we will do our best to provide access to the information required for them to make an informed decision on election day.
What We Believe
An active & informed electorate is essential to insure a responsive & robust government that truly serves the citizens it represents. As a group we are stronger than when we stand alone.
Their review last week of the Mayoral and Council candidates was well done. This week they have an interesting piece on the Clay County Budget.
