We share the beliefs of the trail blazing crew that opened this site and we pledge to continue a dialogue that addresses the important issues within the Northwest area of New Jersey. But we will not limit ourselves to just the geographic boundary of the Skylands region. What happens elsewhere; Trenton, Washington, even Morristown and Newark affects us in many ways.

We share the original Patriots’ zeal for the lost art of civil debate and demand for the truth. When we were first approached to take over this blog, we engaged in discussions on a far reaching list of topics, we agreed on some, we disagreed on some. But we welcome the new access to the many thousands of followers as we begin this new adventure.

We hope to live up to the standards of past articles, but we will be less orientated towards the personal. Unlike the others, we will not paid to write anything about anybody.

Our politics are also varied and fluid. Our authors, while also writing for other local and statewide outlets, are interested in one common goal. The truth. We will strive to be interesting, accurate and truthful. We also plan to continue the graphically appealing format that has made the The Skylands Patriot easy to read, aesthetically pleasing and so popular.

The Skylands Patriot is editorially independent, we are deliberately free from the influence of wealthy owners and paid political fluff and attack journalism.

We encourage other authors to contribute on any subject if they wish.

Our email contact address is skylandspatriot@gmail.com. We can also be found on our Skylands Patriot page on Facebook.

Our mission will continue:

Tell the truth, or we will tell it for you!
