The Community Law Center has announced that its "Booze News" liquor board watchblog has been saved.
The long-running blog, which has produced much of the journalism about the politically important Baltimore City Liquor Board for the past several years, was de-funded last fall by the Abell Foundation.
The CLC launched an online crowdfunding effort to raise $10,000. That they did: "In just one month, Community Law Center has raised $10,441 to save the award-winning blog, Booze News," the organization says in a press release. "In every issue, Staff Attorney Becky Witt holds the Liquor Board accountable for its actions and increases the transparency of its decisions."
