We’ve got so much to be thankful for during this holiday season. Namely, you, the readers, partners and funders of Texas Watchdog. 
 
Thanks to your support we’ve been able to dig into contract steering and cronyism at the Houston school district, unearth problems at the Texas Windstorm Insurance Agency and spotlight efforts to reform health care in Texas. We’ve also taken hard looks at stimulus spending, probed elected officials’ conflicts of interest and we continue the fight for better transparency in local and state government.

Since our founding in August of 2008, Texas Watchdog’s impact has grown. We now have a staff of six. We get nearly 1 million hits on our website and our numerous social networks each month. And that doesn’t include the millions more who see us via our partnerships with other media such as television stations, radio and newspapers. Our reporting has been highlighted by national news outlets like ProPublica, the National Review and the Center for Public Integrity, as well as local media such as the Houston Community Newspapers, the Houston Chronicle, KHOU 11 and KTRK 13.

We believe our work is fundamental to our democracy -- and fundamental to keeping our local and state officials on the straight and narrow.

If you do, too, please join keep reading and responding to our stories, telling your friends and donating to Texas Watchdog.

Even better, join us on December 3 and raise a glass with us to toast even more watchdogging in the future.

Trent Seibert, editor.
