Times-Dispatch editorial page needs ‘more balance’

I have been a Richmond newspaper subscriber since I came to Virginia in the 1970s. I have watched as the editorial section has evolved from a significantly conservative slant to a more liberal one. Being a conservative myself, this trend has been somewhat difficult for me. But I realize that the state has moved from red to purple, so I try to satisfy myself with the regular George Will columns and the occasional conservative letters to the editor.

I have even submitted several letters myself to try and balance things out. However, I feel that I’m reaching a woke saturation point. The constant barrage of attacks on my conservative values and leaders is truly disheartening.

Please keep in mind that a substantial percentage of your readers are conservative. A little more balance would go a long way to improving your paper’s credibility and maybe even your subscriber retention rate.
