Mark Miller is editor of Pamplin Media newspapers in Washington and Columbia counties.

"I was born in Hillsboro, grew up in Cedar Mill and live in Beaverton. To me, Washington County is home. That's why I am passionate about serving and informing the residents of Portland's Westside. There are rich and meaningful stories to tell in communities like Forest Grove, Tualatin, Sherwood, Banks and Garden Home. Things happen here every day that make a real difference in people's lives. As editor-in-chief, it's my mission to ensure residents of Washington County have access to fair-minded, carefully reported news you can trust — because as a longtime resident myself, I know firsthand just how important that is."

"I look at what we do at the Pamplin Media Group as truly community journalism. My daily challenge is not only to keep tabs on what happens in schools and government, I want to know about that new business down the street or find out how the person who may live next to you is contributing to the community. It's a fun, but challenging career."

Geoff Pursinger - Digital Editor

Phone: 971-368-2365

Geoff Pursinger is digital editor for the Pamplin Media Group and currator of our weekly members-only email newsletters.

"I always knew I wanted to be a writer, but while novelists spend their time dreaming up scenarios and dialogue, I've always found the stories of real people to be just as interesting and inspiring as any work of fiction. Community journalism is a distillation of everything I love about reporting; it's about telling stories about our friends, our neighbors, our brothers and sisters. It's about holding a mirror up to ourselves, celebrating our beauties and exposing our faults. It's an honor to get to tell those stories."
