Craig Newmark Joins Center for Public Integrity Board

Craig Newmark, founder of craigslist and, more recently, craigconnects, was added to the board of directors at The Center for Public Integrity.

Executive director William E. Buzenberg said:

Craig Newmark is an iconic visionary who saw the community-empowerment potential of the Internet early on. It’s a great honor to have him on our board, where he can help the Center for Public Integrity in its own community-building efforts linked to in-depth investigative reporting and truth-telling.

Newmark added:

The center does high-quality investigative reporting, vital to the future of a free country. Citizens need to stand up and be part of that.
