We value your support now more than ever.

All year we’ve been covering the issues that matter most to you—the pandemic, the election, policing, housing, and more—and now our end of year membership campaign is here. Will you support our work to ensure we can bring you the same informative local reporting in 2021?

Welcome to City Desk, Washington City Paper‘s new staff blog.

Here, CP staffers and contributors will be reporting and commenting on neighborhood news, politics, the media, the arts—pretty much all things D.C. except sex.

Expect crack reporting and sharp commentary from a group of journalists that knows our city better than any team out there. In the coming days, look for posts from Trey Graham on theater, Mark Jenkins on architecture and planning, Tim Carman on food, James Jones on D.C. politics, Erik Wemple on local media, and many more.

If you have any comments or tips, we’d love to have them.
