Fundraising
Thank you to everyone who responded to our 2017 fundraising appeals. We finished the year having met our fundraising goal, and because of the support of both our donors and our loyal advertisers we enter 2018 in good shape financially. We look forward to your continued support in the new year.

Editor search
At its December 13 meeting, the News Board decided to extend the search for a new editor into late January. We placed ads in the January 10 print issue of Seven Days as well as on the Seven Days website, Front Porch Forum and Craig’sList. We’ll be interviewing finalists for the position during the week of January 22. Here’s who we’re searching for:

The Charlotte News, Charlotte’s biweekly nonprofit community newspaper, is looking for a new editor. The editor works with a layout manager, an ad manager, and a team of volunteer writers, copyeditors, proof readers and photographers to produce multimedia stories of interest to Charlotters.

Strong writing and organizational skills are a must, as is newspaper or other publishing experience. A good eye for photography, as well as familiarity with the Town of Charlotte, would be helpful. The paper is published 25 times a year, and the position requires about 40 hours per issue. Pay is commensurate with experience.

The News, founded in 1958, is Vermont’s oldest nonprofit community newspaper. If you’re interested in taking the paper into its seventh decade as the Voice of the Town and would like more information about the position and the search process, please contact Rick Detwiler by January 21.
