Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

It seems after Memorial Day things have been a little sluggish by way of news. It’s not that news isn’t happening, but in this business it seems when it rains it pours, and when it’s dry it’s like you’re in the middle of the Sahara Desert.

Every year around this time we expect the political life to slow down a little — school’s out, city councils often have lighter agendas because people are taking vacations with families. I’m not complaining, it’s great to have things slow down every now and then, but I also feel like I’m not doing my job unless I’m slammed with stories and working 12-hour days.

So instead of using my weekly Tuesday blog post to blab about whatever I’ve been covering on my various “political” beats, I thought I’d try to find out from readers what they’d like to see us cover. (I realize I may be opening a can of worms here, but I think it’s always good to check in from time to time with our loyal Kitsap Caucus followers).

What do you want to see us cover when it comes to government? I specifically cover Central and North Kitsap, so anything you can think of for those areas would be great, but feel free to suggest ideas for other areas in Kitsap, as well as state agencies.

Are we missing something? Is there an expose you’ve been mulling over that you’d like to see someone dig into? Or do you have something good (gasp) that you want to share about government? (Or anything else good for that matter, heck I’m not picky!)

Now some parameters: No conspiracy theories please; no personal attacks against people; no claims that you can’t prove are true; since it’s election season I will not be writing any stories that appear to be major cheerleading for one candidate over the other — or that go out of their way to make one candidate look bad, that’s for the opinion page and its Letters to the Editor section.

Lastly, my disclaimer: I can’t promise I’ll write everything suggested, or that I’ll even write anything (I need, legitimate, good suggestions here people). If you’re serious about a story leave contact information so I can follow up (you can email me at bgrimley@kitsapsun.com if you don’t want your information posted on the blog).

Like I said, I probably just opened a can of worms, but I’m also excited to hear from you all about what you’d like to see us do a better job of covering, or to see what stories you all have mulling through your heads at one time or another.
