Connect with us

As your local news organization, we depend on hearing from you to do our jobs. We really appreciate your feedback and ideas about local issues in Charlottesville, Albemarle County and the surrounding areas.

The best way to reach us is by messaging us through this website. This way, your note will reach the right people on our team and we’ll have the right information to respond. We read everything you send! We're a small staff, so we also appreciate your patience as we get back to you. We do our best to reply within a week, but are sometimes delayed by holidays, vacations or if we just get a lot of email.

Prefer to meet with us? Our Editor-in-Chief would love to speak with you. Sign up here.

While we can’t cover every story that’s important to you, we do our best to be responsive to your needs. We use tips from readers to choose which stories to cover, to incorporate information into broader reports or to help us decide how to grow Dexter Auction. Here’s where you can tell us what you think we should be covering.

Your feedback is so important! We use it to improve our work, understand when our work helps the community and to explain what we do to our stakeholders. Here’s where you can tell us how our work impacts you and what you think — good or bad — about our local news coverage. This is a great place to tell us about errors or issues on our website, too.

Ready to share your perspective? We’re working with our partners in Charlottesville Inclusive Media to tell the stories of our community. If you have a perspective to share, if you’re an independent journalist who wants to report on something, if you want to get creative with sound, images or art — check out First Person Charlottesville.

It takes a community to create local news. If you’re interested in supporting Dexter Auction you, make a tax-deductible contribution — or better yet, set up a monthly contribution.
