TIR 2.0 – We Need Your Input

Since our launch in March of 2009, has quickly become the premier destination for political news and commentary in the state.  In the weeks that follow, there will be changes made to the site to make it even better.

As we prepare to make improvements and add new features, we also want to ask you, our loyal readers, what changes you would like to see.  In addition to any new features that you would like to see, we are also interested in knowing what things you don’t want to see changed.  Don’t feel the need to sugarcoat your opinions.  We want your honest thoughts on how we can best improve the site.

With the 2012 Iowa caucuses just 14 months away, a major portion of the changes that are in the works deal with how we plan to cover caucus politics and the presidential campaigns.  We want to know what type of information you would find most beneficial, as well as how you would like that information to be kept on the website.

Please click here and submit your suggestions by filling out this form.  Also feel free to use the comment section below.

Thank you,
