|New political columnists begin in The Landmark
The newspaper known for providing the best coverage of Platte County politics gets another boost this week. Two new local political columnists are making their debut in this issue of The Landmark.
Russ Purvis, active in Democratic politics in Platte County, will pen a weekly opinion piece entitled The Convenient Truth. Purvis is an attorney with the James Montee Law Firm in Parkville. He currently serves as chairman of the Platte County Democratic Central Committee.
James C. Thomas III, an attorney with Husch & Eppenberger who is active in Republican politics in Platte County, also begins a weekly column in this issue of The Landmark. His column will be entitled The Right Stuff.
Both of the new columns will appear each week on page 3. Looking to offer local political balance on the page, The Landmark set out with a goal of finding opinionated contributors from each side of the aisle. The newspaper is excited about the additions of these two columnists, who are well-known in political circles.
Most weeks, Thomas and Purvis will be free to approach political topics of their choosing. On occasion, The Landmark will offer a "point/counterpoint" type discussion between Thomas and Purvis on a specific issue.
