When I want to go deep on an important news story in the Seattle-Bellevue area, I go to Crosscut. There are so many interesting, evolving things happening in our community. The Eastside has overcome so many challenges, and I foresee so much opportunity for growth. But for the Eastside to grow and thrive, the Eastside and the Puget Sound as a region needs to know about Eastside issues and why they are important to us.
Shockingly, Bellevue and surrounding communities on the Eastside — including Kirkland, Redmond, Issaquah and Woodinville, have no daily newspaper. Crosscut needs your financial support to add editorial and reporting capacity to ensure Eastside issues get covered.
Crosscut’s presence on the Eastside is critical to covering local education, transportation and other policy issues that other publications simply aren’t. Crosscut is one of the most reliable sources of in-depth, balanced reporting on issues that make headlines and those under-reported topics that deserve extensive coverage. Become a member to ensure Crosscut’s Eastside editorial coverage can expand with the expansion of Eastside life, business, and politics.
As a business owner in Bellevue, I appreciate that Crosscut sees my community as one filled with potential, opportunity, and interesting news. If you live “over here”, your eyes eventually glaze over with the latest “same old-same old” controversy dominating Seattle news. Crosscut has discovered that our community has vibrancy, diversity, and potential equal to Seattle. Equitable coverage throughout the region is critical to our region becoming smarter and more civically engaged, and they need your membership to get stronger.
Crosscut is truly a unique and necessary news source for the entire Puget Sound. I will always want the morning paper on my doorstep, and I will always also want to click on Crosscut.com each day to be sure I’m getting the deep, rich content I need on the most important stories in our region.
