Labor Day marks the end of summer and the return to routine. We’re glad that Governing continues to be part of your daily routine. To be sure, there has been significant change over the summer for us, with the publication of final print issue of Governing magazine this month — even as the daily online edition and a number of our events continue.

We have been overwhelmed by reader responses. This reader spoke for many:

Indeed we are. The Daily will continue to publish news that matters to state and local decision-makers. You’ll hear from familiar voices and some new ones that bring fresh perspectives to the challenges of governing in the 21st century. And to begin answering the questions you’ve asked, will continue to be available, preserving its rich journalistic resources for policy makers.

The tremendous outpouring of support and your personal stories about when you first began reading Governing, how it helped you make important decisions and find a community among like-minded public servants, affirmed the important place Governing holds in state and local government. We are taking your feedback seriously.

Stay with us over the coming weeks for details on how the Governing you've relied on for decades can become the Governing you need now and tomorrow.
