Hi folks, it’s B with a quick programming note about 101PC.
It’s been a few months since I’ve put together any posts. (Been busy with some other projects.) However, I have been adding to my ever-growing list of topics to cover, and I plan on picking up where I left off soon.
When I started the site over a year ago, I said my hope was for this to be a place for people to learn about policies that impact their lives, and to hear differing viewpoints (and hopefully new voices) about why this stuff matters. There’s still a lot of work to do on my part—I’m in the process of making a 101PC dictionary-thingy, for example—but I still have the same level of enthusiasm I had when I started this.
The site will always be free, but I’m now accepting small donations (like $1) for those interested in supporting this work. While money is a “nice to have” instead of a “need to have” at this point, any amount would help me continue writing pieces like these ones from the past year-plus:
- A Primer on Redistricting
- Student Loan Debt & Policy Solutions (requested by a reader)
- Three Ways to Improve Our Democracy
- It’s Time for Public Banks
- A two-part post on the minimum wage
- Food for Thought: One Way Cities Can Improve Their Food Systems
- When Sheriffs & Local Law Enforcement Intersect with Immigration
- What Joe Manchin Wants To Do About Voting
- Climate Change, Overcoming Partisanship, & Joe Biden’s Climate Plan (by request)
And looking ahead, here’s a list of topics I’ll be covering over the next few months:
- The impact of bail bond reform
- How secretaries of state impact voting
- Closed vs. open primary elections
- Local journalism’s role in government oversight
- Home rule charters and state preemption laws
I’ll also keep writing about current events, ongoing public debates about certain policies, and anything readers ask me to cover. Look out for new posts, or simply sign up for notifications below:
