Dear readers,

We can’t do our job without you.

Earlier this year, we asked you to become a Seattle Times subscriber, and many people like you responded, telling us how important a vigorous, credible and independent news source is in an era of fake news. Serious journalism is not free, and now more than ever, we need you to subscribe so we can continue that critical commitment. We hope you agree that news from The Seattle Times is worth paying for.

Becoming a subscriber gives you unlimited access to our continuously updated website, seattletimes.com, and our mobile apps for convenient on-the-go news; newsletters that give you a succinct summary of the news of the day; podcasts; great weekly deals and much more.

Examples of the great work we’ve done recently include a story uncovering serious errors that led to catastrophic flooding at the West Point wastewater treatment plant; a series of stories detailing accusations of sexual abuse that led to Seattle Mayor Ed Murray’s resignation; and breaking news and reaction around Amazon’s announcement that it would add a second headquarters outside Seattle. We publish news you need, stories that trigger change and inform us about our community, but we also entertain and enlighten you about the local restaurant scene, Seahawks and Husky football and a variety of other uniquely Northwest topics.

To help us continue that commitment, we hope you’ll subscribe. You can do so by following this link or calling 206-464-2121. Thank you for throwing your support behind quality local journalism.

Sincerely,

Don Shelton
Executive Editor, The Seattle Times
