With regrets, the News Tribune Opinion page announces today that Becky Hall is no longer a member of the editorial board.
Hall chose to leave the volunteer position because she wants to raise money for and more actively support candidates in the Aug. That level of political involvement posed a conflict of interest with editorial board responsibilities.
That says a lot about your openness and integrity as an editorial board. I'm a little bit heartbroken that I have to step Sorru. It was Hall's second stint on the board.
She served in after running unsuccessfully for public office on several occasions. She's also a regular panelist on "Harry's Gang," a show on public-access cable television. The News Tribune announces the comings and goings of editorial board members as part of a commitment to transparency and full disclosure.
The newspaper feels readers have a right to know from where editorial opinions come. Publishing editorials and other opinion pieces is meant to spark and help lead conversations about issues and matters that most affect, and are most important to, our communities.
From many viewpoints come the best ideas and, ultimately, solutions. The News Tribune, via its Opinion pages, remains committed to providing a civil and informed forum for all viewpoints. The Opinion page will consider replacing Hall in a couple of weeks, after endorsement editorials for the primaries are published.Bernie MO Housewives Personals
