to the online presence of The Midtown Messenger, the premier
source of news and information for Central Phoenix and its Midtown
Historic Districts. You have probably come to know us via our print edition, published monthly since October 2001 and distributed to over 13,000 homes and businesses in the Central
print version will remain pre-eminent, and this online presence
of the publication is meant not to replicate it, but to supplement
it. Here you will find ancillary resources offered in line with
our mission to provide the information citizens need to enjoy
the best possible urban experience and to participate in public
policy decisions facing our community. For example, we may link
to other online resources or, as you'll see by following the
links at left, provide supplemental materials on topics covered
in the print edition that it would not be practical to publish
In addition, this site will provide readers with more opportunity
than ever before to interact with The Midtown Messenger and its
management. As an example of such an opportunity, clicking on the image at right will take you to our ongoing reader survey. We want to know how
you value and perceive us and whether there are different or
additional things we could be doing to serve you. Bear in mind,
we may not have the resources to immediately act on even the
suggestions we agree with. And we maintain a commitment to our
core mission of providing local news affecting Midtown with a
focus and depth that is not to be found in any other vehicle.
However, where and when we can do more that is consistent with
that mission, we will.
We acknowledge that the survey asks for some personal--as
well as personally identifiable--information. We are asking for
the former (household size and composition, income, home value,
etc.) so that we may compile aggregate data to demonstrate to
advertisers the value of reaching our readership with their message.
We ask for the latter so that we may contact you in the future
with additional news, information or questions. We pledge that
we will not use or share your individual data with any third
party, and will not link your personal with your personally identifiable
data for any use whatsoever.
We thank the community for its support thus far. And we thank
you in advance for your input.
