About The Mohawk Valley Compass

The Mohawk Valley Compass is a free online news website, supported by advertising, and focused primarily on the City of Amsterdam and Montgomery County in upstate New York.

Our independent correspondents and photographers attend common council meetings, county legislature meetings, school board meetings and other important local events. They provide our readers with important news in a fair and objective manner. The Compass also goes behind the news stories, analyzing them and commenting on them in special reports and opinion columns.

The Compass is a community oriented paper and desires to foster an atmosphere in which members of the community will respond to news and commentary in a way that respects the opinions of others and encourages a meaningful exchange of ideas.

The Compass is published by Anthem Websites, Inc. All posts and comments on the Compass reflect the views of the individual authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Compass or Anthem Websites, Inc.
