>Fact Check program about accountability, transparency in local news reporting

>I’m buying in, literally, to downtown’s potential

Never before has $200 given me such a feeling of empowerment.
Like most of you, I am tired of driving past empty storefronts and buildings falling into disrepair on Water Street every day.
And like most of you, I felt helpless when the Torrington Twisters were purchased by an out-of-state person two years ago and moved to Massachusetts.
