Bringing Attention to Local Issues: A Conversation with Bridget Grumet

The Austin American-Statesman’s opinion writer, Bridget Grumet, tackled a variety of different issues in 2018. She wrote about hyperlocal topics — like the disparate treatment of girls youth soccer, city tax propositions, and the Austin Police Academy — to dense global topics like climate change. Her work won her the distinction of 2018 Star Opinion Writer of the Year award from the Texas Associated Press Managing Editors last month. Grumet took a moment to visit with Foundation Chairman Mark Morrison to discuss her award-winning editorial articles.
