I wanted to write and provide you with a much overdue update on Ohio Statehouse News. As you may recall, this web based, Ohio conservative news outlet was started just over one year ago. At the time we had a funder who had provided the site with the financial resources to pay a full time Editor, along with a part time Publisher and Contributing Editor.
Unfortunately, that financial support ended in August of last year. As a result our full time Editor, Cheryl Stephen, has departed the site and returned to her work on her farm and with animal welfare issues. Cheryl did an incredible job and she will be greatly missed!
Since then, my company and I have acquired this site and we have been working diligently to keep it alive. You will begin to notice that we have begun taking some text based advertising and will eventually be entering into affiliate relationships with some conservative advertisers. Finally, we will be making a renewed push to ask you for some financial support. You can easily make either a one time or a monthly recurring donation by clicking on this Paypal link.
As you may remember, this is the third conservative Ohio based news site that I have been associated with. I wrote for the now defunct 3rd Rail Politics site, The Ohio Star, which is still in existence, and now this site.
To keep this site alive, I need your help. Please feel free to email me with your story ideas, your news tips, your news releases, and/or your guest columns. Your guest columns may be signed or unsigned.
As we mentioned earlier we could also use your financial support. I have no intention to take a salary from this site but I would like to hire some contract writers in the future, along with helping cover the costs of hosting, mailchimp, advertising, etc.
I thank you for continuing to read and comment on the site. I hope to start producing some fresh articles shortly and hope you will continue to read us. Thank you.
