2014 : Michigan Citizen Ends Weekly Publication

December 28, 2018 all-day

The Michigan Citizen published its last weekly edition Dec. 28, 2014.

We have deep gratitude for the hundreds of contributors over nearly four decades, the tens of thousands of readers and the citizens in our community who informed our work and whose voices challenged local and state government to be responsible to all of us.

The Citizen was founded by the late Charles D. Kelly (1932-2006) and Teresa Maxwell Kelly in 1978. Their experience as community organizers provided the newspaper’s editorial focus.

The Citizen has attempted to hold public officials and institutions accountable and in so doing has shaped a distinctive voice in Michigan’s media landscape.

Due to the overall decline of the newspaper industry, the print format ​will end. Connect with the Michigan Citizen via social media to learn of future projects.

Thank you all.
