The StarNews editorial board is composed of a group of employees who help shape and write the columns that run under the Our View header on the editorial page.
The Our View columns represent the official opinions of the StarNews as a community institution, which is why they are not signed by individual writers. Members of the editorial board, under the leadership of the publisher, shape the opinions by consensus and write the editorials. Editorials do not necessarily reflect the views of the newsroom.
Current members of the editorial board are Publisher Mike Distelhorst and staff members Scott Nunn (opinions coordinator), Pam Sander (executive editor), Ben Steelman and Si Cantwell.
The board highlights issues it thinks are important to our readers and responds to news events, mindful of the newspaper’s principles and stands it has taken in the past.
We hope by expressing our thoughts that it brings our community to a point of discussion about any given topic. Only then will a community gain intelligent and peaceful resolutions of topics of community interest.
