STATEMENT OF CIRCULATION Since the beginning of our activity in July 2011 we have been privileged and humbled to receive a growing number of page views now approximately 4200  per week from visitors including but not limited to the Chagrin Falls, Ohio, area. You may have noticed that there are no commercials or advertisements to defray the costs of operation. Therefore, we encourage you to do as you have been doing: spreading the word about our coverage of important issues in Auburn Township as well as Geauga County. It is your good word that enables our continued growth.

Thank you for caring about your community and the issues that accompany efficient and responsible government.


Mission Statement
It is our mission to improve the Accountability and Transparency of local government.

Accountability means that public officials - elected and un-elected - have an obligation to explain their decisions and actions to the citizens.

Transparency
in government, means that citizens must be able to "see through" its workings, to know exactly what goes on when public officials transact public business.
