Are you inquisitive, relentless and critical? Are you not afraid to pick up the phone or knock on doors to track down sources? Do you love trolling through public records?
If your answers to the above questions are yes, yes and hell yes, then we want you.

If you're interested in reporting on local issues -- anything from crime to transportation to politics -- then we're interested in you.
