Thanks for your Aug. 3 editorial highlighting the importance of restoring faith in Illinois government. This is in the hands of concerned citizens, but we'll do better if we have a process that we can align around to help us move forward. If you choose, the Daily Herald can play a key role in this by taking your investigative reporting up a notch and by providing a communications platform to help us organize what needs to be done.
I challenge you to take on this role. If you do, you'll be part of an exciting new community of interest that will help ensure the relevance of your paper for years to come. If you don't, you're encouraging concerned citizens, who'll be working on this change, to build a community that doesn't include the Daily Herald, and that would be a shame for all of us.
