Letter: Consider supporting local journalism

To the Editor:

Over the past two months I have thought, over and over again how fortunate the Bennington area is to have a locally owned newspaper providing regular updates on the pandemic and local responses.

The investors who purchased the papers in Bennington, Pittsfield, Brattleboro and Manchester deserve a big thank you for rescuing us from the national chain that owned the papers. I'm sure that with businesses closed the economics of staying open are difficult.

To my neighbors and friends: keep getting the Banner, or start up again if you quit during the dark times.

Charles R. Putney,
