About The Opinion Pages
The Opinion Pages was created to be an op-ed page that was not partisan and would feature thoughtful voices from both the political Left and the Right. Our target audience is key thought leaders, lawmakers and other influential voices in the public policy landscape. While our focus is political, we also run pieces about a variety of topics including culture, entertainment and sports.
As the creator of this new opinion platform, it is my sincere hope that readers will take the time to consider perspectives different than their own.
