Independent news, free of government or corporate restraints, is vital to a thriving democracy.
Local news provides important information at the micro, geographically specific level, in a way the national news just can't.
The Commons is both.
We let you know, on a weekly basis, about essential, quality of life issues going on in your community.
Best of all, it's free, enabling all of our citizens to stay well informed and involved.
But it is not free to produce. Please, join us, and together we can provide this thriving community with the news and events we need to know about, and educational programs that ensure the next generation grows up to be strong, informed leaders.
Become a member of Vermont Independent Media. A donation of $75 or more will get you a copy of The Commons mailed to your home every week for one year, and any amount will help us continue producing free, informative news to those in our community, which we are grateful you are a part of.
