Here at Monterey County Weekly, we put the freedom of the press at the top of our list of things to celebrate. It turns out, however, that a free press is an expensive enterprise. Our editorial department is the largest of any media operation covering Monterey County and the costs of providing professional, trustworthy journalism are substantial. Please join over 3,000 of your friends and neighbors and become a Weekly Insider today. We are asking the people who appreciate our local and independent journalism to help fund the operation. We designate all those who contribute as Insiders. Scan the QR code to become an Insider. In honor of Independence Day, the Weekly is offering an Insider incentive program. If you sign up to give $15/month from now through July 7, or make a onetime contribution of $150 or greater, we’ll send you a handy-dandy new “Totally Locally” tote bag.
