West St. Paul Reader Two-Year Anniversary

Two Years of West St. Paul Reader

Today is the two-year anniversary of West St. Paul Reader. Our first post went live on May 14, 2019. It was a recap of the previous night’s City Council meeting. Since then we’ve been helping West St. Paul know what’s going on.

We recently celebrated by commissioning a new West St. Paul postcard, adding to our collection of members-only exclusives:

What’s Happening

A frequent complaint we hear from West St. Paul residents is that they don’t know what’s going on. We get it. Local news sources have shut down or scaled back. The city tries to notify people, but they can only do so much. Social media can be a turnoff and who has the time to do the research themselves?

This is why West St. Paul Reader exists. Our mission is to help people know what’s going on in West St. Paul.

You can help us celebrate our two-year anniversary by supporting that mission.
