Northwest Citizen provides news, commentary, and discussion on local politics and public issues for Whatcom County and Northwest Washington State. Our citizen journalists present responsible viewpoints and hold local officials responsible and accountable for their actions. Originally started as a one person politics blog in 1995, Northwest Citizen has grown to include 14 regular writers and over 20 contributing writers, with a growing readership of hundreds every day. Our articles are intended to complement other established local news outlets and to provide informed perspectives that explain important community issues. Anyone is welcome to register and comment on articles but we verify that each is using their actual name and that those who abuse commenting are blocked. We appreciate quality dialog that informs, rather than a quantity of inane comments.
