We admit it. The Keizertimes has an agenda. It is called a people agenda. We cover the news—good and bad—happening within the seven square miles that is the city of Keizer.

Most of our news revolves around people—leaders, both government and civic, students, athletes, business owners and average people, just like you.

What we don’t have is an ideological or political agenda. Sure, opinions are shared but only on the Keizertimes opinion page, where all viewpoints are welcome. The opinion page is much like a public square, a place where anyone can express themselves.

While we do choose which opinion writer’s column to publish, we are careful to cover the ideological spectrum on the opinion page.

No community is a monolith: there are many different views in Keizer and we must be sensitive to all of them.
