The Current once again the community's top news source

Published on July 18, 2018 | 4:38 pm CDT

The Winnetka Current was voted by residents as the community's No.1 news source in a recent Winnetka Caucus Survey in 2018.  

Results show nearly 81 percent of voters (840 of 1,038 participants) selected the publication when asked, “Where do you get your information about issues and events related to Winnetka?” Results were posted June 29, 2018. 

“It’s a proud moment for us to see these survey results,” said Joe Coughlin, the publisher of 22nd Century Media, The Current’s parent company. “Knowing that close to 90 percent of Winnetkans rely on The Current for their local news is an honor. It’s why we do this job and strive to get better at it every day. Thank you, Winnetka, for your readership.”

The Current has been voted as the top news source consistently for several years. 

Following The Current, voters said they receive information from e-mails from the Village, parks, schools, library and caucus; then newsletters and websites. 

The caucus survey also gathered information on the Village of Winnetka, Winnetka-Northfield Public Library District, Winnetka Park District and District 36.  

In an email detailing the results, Bill Schneider, the 2018 Winnetka Caucus Council chairman, said it was the largest response the council had received in years. 

Based on the results, the Winnetka Caucus Council will next generate platforms to be presented to the full caucus at the Fall Town Hall Meeting on Nov. 15 at Hubbard Woods Elementary School, 1110 Chatfield Road, Winnetka. 

In all, the Winnetka Caucus is a nonpartisan group of volunteers who serve to represent the residents of Winnetka in selecting candidates for board positions on the four governing bodies, conducting an annual survey and generating platforms for each body, and holding two open town halls each year.
