Newport News Residents Encouraged To Apply For Hispanic Advisory Committee

Sign up here for our free newsletter that tells you about the newest stories, three mornings each week.

NEWPORT NEWS—Nearly 10 percent of Newport News residents are Hispanic and are actively engaged in making the city a welcoming, supportive place to live.

To represent the population, Newport News created the Hispanic Advisory Committee to the city manager in 2008 to serve as a liaison between city administration and the Hispanic community. The committee advises and makes recommendations to the city manager on current and future issues, needs, programs, and services as they relate to the Hispanic community.

The committee, which consists of up to 12 community members, is currently seeking interested applicants. To apply, residents must either be Hispanic or work for an organization that provides services to the Hispanic community in Newport News.

Committee members are appointed by the city manager through an application process. Interested parties can learn more about the committee, and/or complete an application on the Hispanic Advisory Committee webpage.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
