Hello faithful reader and thanks for your support. We here at MTR have some great news. We are “moving” to the Massachusetts edition of News Platoon. The Mass News Platoon is in “soft launch” mode while our growing community familiarizes itself with the new site, writing schedules, etc. Our focus: free markets, fiscal reform and restraint, and Transparency as always. We will also be doing reporting on news stories affecting Massachusetts citizens. Building a sense of community is essential to any journalistic endeavor and Mass Transparency Review/Mass News Platoon is no different. If you would like to write for our site, send a newstip, story suggestion, please drop us a line: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks and hope to see you around.
