The LSJ Editorial Board is a four-member body, speaking for the Lansing State Journal as an institution on issues that impact the community. We craft editorials to help elevate conversations around these topics, with the hope of positively affecting change in the communities we serve.

To cap each year, we look at the issues impacting Greater Lansing and can’t help but think of the headlines our readers have not yet seen.

Here are the headlines we hope for in 2020:
