It has been nearly four years and more than one million words since the inception of LouisianaVoice and today we have readers in every state. We constantly receive information and tips from readers that often lead to groundbreaking stories about backroom deals in state government that affect our lives on a daily basis.
Along the way, the Washington Post named LouisianaVoice as one of only two Louisiana-based blogs among the top 100 state political blogs in the nation (Bob Mann’s Something Like the Truth was the other). We hope that our stories have helped keep some of our political leaders in check but if not, we hope just as fervently that we have shown a bright light on their activities.
Unfortunately, while the growing number of tips has expanded our coverage, it also has increased our operational costs substantially.
And because we don’t charge a subscription fee or accept cheesy advertising that offers secret cancer cures, methods in which to cut gasoline bills or high blood pressure breakthroughs, we have only one other source of revenue: your donations.
We have been reluctant to ask for donations from our readers, but we have reached a point that we need to add at least one, perhaps two additional reporters to keep up with the abundance of stories about what your elected and appointed officials do behind closed doors.
If you like the service we provide and would like to see our reporting on an expanded basis, please click on the “Donate” button on the right and contribute whatever amount you would like either by PayPal or credit card.
If you prefer, you may pay by check, of course. Please make checks payable to Capital News Service/LouisianaVoice. Our address is:
107 North College West
Denham Springs, LA. 70726
Your loyalty to LouisianaVoice is both humbling and greatly appreciated.
