Keep It Local, Florida is an online publication that specializes in the latest political and policy news affecting Florida’s local communities. Our list of Keep It Local, Florida readers stretches from Pensacola to the Keys and totals more than 375,000 email subscribers. It’s not uncommon for our publication to distribute traditional content from Florida’s leading news outlets (properly linked and credited, of course), unique content special to Keep It Local, Florida, features from Florida’s local leaders, dynamic web-videos and even periodic public opinion surveys.

We’re not partisan. But we do have a point-of-view. Put simply, we believe in local control: The idea that government closest to the people tends to govern best. We seek to address public policy questions through that lens, which guides out content selection and editorial opinion.

We welcome your ideas for new sections, videos, surveys and features. Please write us at
