In December, I sat down with the Vanguard Editorial Board and came up with a list of goals for 2015. One of them is to get 22 individuals or groups to commit to writing at least one piece per month or writing a series of articles on topics of interest to both themselves and the Vanguard.
So last night we had a brainstorming section and came up with some lists of topics that we would throw out and see if anyone had an interest in picking up the ball.
We’ll be also soliciting some possible writers directly, but we thought we’d throw this out to the broader community as well. So a few parameters. First, you don’t have to agree with the Vanguard on these issues – in fact, it is better to get a diversity of different viewpoints and different perspectives. Second, we are throwing out these topics, but column topic choices are not limited to these topics. Sometimes it is just better to throw out ideas to start the creative juices flowing.
Third, it doesn’t have to be a monthly column. Some people like to write more, others might want to write only a piece or two and not have the pressure of creating a topic every month.
Topics to consider include:
Mental Health Services
Innovation Park Tax Sharing
Bicycling including issues surrounding:
Covell/ Dutch Planning
DWR Contract/ County Waste
Energy – POU, CCA
Child Obesity/ Nutrition
Low Income Children
