The Advocate, As Washington Gridlocks

In their February 15, 2019 editorial, The Advocate points to Our Towns for examples of local progress across the country. They posit that the book’s essential message is that, “Once you get past the tweets and countertweets and cable news foodfights that pass for civil discourse in Washington, things are actually getting done in many parts of the heartland.”

“It’s evidence, the Fallowses suggest, that while civic progress might seem stalled in the nation’s capital, victories are being scored in local places. To the degree that Our Towns has found an audience, it’s no doubt because people are hungry for good news where they can find it.”
