Our Team

We are proud that team at The Yonkers Ledger is a mix of volunteers and paid contributors from all over Yonkers. As we continue to grow, we invite other Yonkersites to reach out to us and join our nonprofit mission of informing our city with real, independent local news.

The directors are the legal owners of The Yonkers Ledger Incorporated. They guide the strategy of the organization and enact decisions by a two-thirds vote. Directors perform their duties on a fully-volunteer basis and therefore receive no compensation.

Our staff are tasked with specific roles and responsibilities to further our nonprofit mission of bringing local news to Yonkers. Each staff member operates as an independent contractor, paid for their specific contributions to our cause. Most of our staff have full-time professional careers in their specific skillset and carry that experience over to their part-time work within our organization.
