About Us


Laurie Stuart

Laurie Stuart is publisher of The River Reporter and has been with the newspaper since 1977. Her belief that promoting dialogue and engagement can help our communities to shape their own destinies is manifest not only in the newspaper, but also in her community work as convener of the Upper Delaware River Roundtable and as an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister. She has an artistic bent that finds expression in activities including felt-making, song-writing and singing — a range of interests reflected in the breadth of human affairs covered by the newspaper.

With degrees in Philosophy of Religion from Reed College and Princeton University, and experience in Wall Street economic research, she brings to the paper a breadth of knowledge and analytical ability that have helped her sharpen the focus of our editorial content and the copyediting or our community and leisure pages. Prior to coming to the newspaper she spent a number of years in free-lance web design and programming, abilities she has used to help design this site and develop the company's online presence.
