Have a Story or Event?

Welcome to the Whisper. As you may have read in an ad in the Wolcott Community News, this blog is maintained by Christopher O’Brien. The purpose of the blog is a mix of reasons. First and foremost, to make Wolcott more informative. Sometimes rumors abound and we’ll investigate them. Other media often doesn’t look into what’s going on like they used to. Often we leave town for work and shopping, but don’t know what’s going on with our neighbors. I’m trying to help bridge that gap. Honestly, I don’t think I can do it without some help.

Two, it is meant to keep Wolcott residents informed to things happening in Wolcott’s town government. If roads are being paved, schools suddenly close, taxes are being raised, etc, you’ll probably want to know because sometimes these things impact your family, your budget, or your child’s education. The blog is meant to be politically- neutral so that you can decide for yourself what a decision should be. Facts will be presented strictly as they occur or figures will be provided with reference. Sometimes a commentary may be written about a particular subject from a particular viewpoint, but all view points are welcome and encouraged.

Third, it is the hope that you, the reader, might also be able to contribute. Whether you simply have a comment or thought on a particular post or have an event you want to advertise, please contact Mr. O’Brien. If you want to write about a particular event or topic, you may also contribute that. (writers are solely responsible for their content).
