  THE CLAY COUNTY PROGRESS: OUR MISSION

Our mission is to publish distinguished and profitable community newspapers. Among our overall goals are:

  • To publish newspapers whose focus will be excellence in terms of news and advertising content, reproduction and service.

  • To maximize profits consistent with product quality, but in no case less than required to assure long-term growth and our editorial independence.

  • To be fundamentalists in our support of the public's right to know, and the right of free speech and press.

  • To take a bias in support of the communities we serve providing aggressive, visionary leadership.
This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals who are dedicated to truth, integrity, loyalty, quality and hard work. We believe that a community must first know about itself in order to act in its own best interest.

We believe strong newspapers build strong communities... "Newspapers get things done!"
