Who We Are

The Millbrook Independent was founded to provide a voice for our community. We have a deep appreciation for how democracy works: sometimes messy, often slow, and at times frustrating. However, the process is what counts. A community newspaper is essential to that process.

We strive to inform and to report; we encourage commentary by citizens and our leaders; we seek a broad range of opinion on subjects of importance.
