DescriptionFor more than twenty (20) years, the City-County Observer has served Evansville/and Southwest Indiana by reporting on issues and events that shape the lives of our citizens.  The publication is built on the cornerstones of service and trust.  It is nonpartisan with consistent and objective reporting.  While our goal is to educate and inform, the publication also serves as a community watchdog by sounding the alarm whenever citizens’ rights and welfare are in danger of being violated by our elected and appointed officials, businesses, and/or large corporations. We encourage our elected and appointed officials to consider the welfare of the citizens and the community. We understand that a community cannot have a greater ambassador of goodwill than one that keeps its citizens informed about the accomplishments, failures, and triumphs of their elected and appointed officials.The City-County Observer is published daily online and mobile and monthly in print monthly at no cost.  Our monthly print papers are available in many locations throughout Evansville/Vanderburgh  County at no cost. Our publication is solely supported by local advertising.
The Rationale For Publishing The City-County Observer:It is widely believed that there is a major void for accurate, truthful, and nonpartisan news throughout the United States and this need has never been more evident than now. It is a known fact that national newspaper conglomerates have put their shareholder’s financial interests and ideological dogma over providing their readers with accurate and unbiased news. Based upon the above premise we decided to create a locally-owned community newspaper that reports the news and does not engage in publishing unvetted rumors as though it was accurate news. It is also widely believed that most of the national media have forgotten their commitment to serve as a guiding light to report both truthful, accurate, and non-biased news.  It is very important to stress that the City-County Observer respects and honors the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The First Amendment  states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or of the press, or the right of the people to peaceably assemble and to petition the government for the for a redress of grievances.”  Also, let us not forget that “When people Fear The Government There Is Tyranny But When The Government Fear The People There Is Liberty!”  (Thomas Jefferson)Examples of City-County Observer’s Successes In Exposing Bad Public Policy And Financial Corruption Over The Years
