Collins' vital reporting benefits our community

Last week Peter Stanley listed his most and least favorite columnists, "Reader has favorites among Day columnists," (July 26). While I am gratified to read his praise for some, I strongly disagree with him about David Collins, whose columns are one of the first things I read. Collins provides the sort of investigative journalism that I admire. His recent articles on the New London port have been very educational. He has a wide understanding of local history and politics and has taught me a great deal about important issues in our community. How else can we learn what our political leaders are getting up to without someone like Collins, who can dig in and provide the facts? His columns are one of the biggest reasons I continue to subscribe to The Day.

Studies have shown that communities with robust investigative journalism receive better bond ratings because corruption is kept at bay. Thank you to The Day and its reporters for the job you do. It is the kind of local reporting that is increasingly in danger in America, where the public does not want to pay for newspapers anymore. I support you in your work.
