We did that work–which was difficult, expensive and sometimes risky–not for the recognition from our journalism peers. To win a Pulitzer Prize, the work must be excellent. But there is plenty of excellent work that never wins the prize. Our archives are rich with stories that are every bit as good as those that won the Pulitzer Prize.
We come to work to help our readers know their communities, and to make the Tampa Bay region a better place. We want our kids to learn in good schools, our neighbors to live in decent housing, our taxes to be spent wisely, our environment to be healthy. When our work earns the admiration of our peers around the country, we are proud. But what counts most is the difference we can make here at home.
