The @Marketplace media production team has been coming in the office for 10 (!) months so the rest of us don't have to.

First APMG leadership wouldn't give them hazard pay, now they don't want them to be in @mplaceunion? I can't understand it.

Superfund sites are some of the most polluted places in the country, and more than 9,000 subsidized housing properties sit within a mile of one.

People across the country are getting a break on their rent, but @fastlerner and I found they're paying for it with their health. Poor families, seniors are living in nation’s most polluted places — and the government has done little to protect them. (1/6) apmreports.org/story/2021/01/…

The kicker on this is everything: “Those papers are the property of the people of the United States. They paid for them with their national treasure and the blood of their sons, and they have a right to it.’”

Breaking news: The Marketplace staff — on-air, online and behind the scenes — is unionizing with @sagaftra!

Let’s do the numbers: more than 70% of us signed our union recognition petition, and today we delivered it to management.

Here’s why we’re organizing. #WeMakeMarketplace

We only collected a small portion of the grant agreements. But we want to read as many as we can. Ask your local government for a copy of their agreement and please send us a copy. Thanks for reading. You can read our full story here: apmreports.org/story/2020/12/…

The problem is that people will begin to wonder if strings are attached. It’s happening now in the criticism of Zuckerberg and CTCL. Is Zuckerberg doing this for the public good or is he trying to whitewashing criticism over how Facebook handles misinformation?

Still, there are worries private money will set a precedent. Some worry the money could be considered tainted even if there are no strings attached. "I don’t think elections should be public/private partnerships," said Rachael Cobb, a political science professor at @Suffolk_U.

But we analyzed voter data in PA, GA and AZ. Registration increased at similar rates regardless of whether counties got grants. The number of voters for Joe Biden increased at a greater rate than the rate for Republican voters, regardless of whether a county received a grant.

Conservative groups and those that work to restrict access to voting continue to criticize the private grants. They say the money helped turnout voters for Joe Biden. Those groups are making Zuck’s bucks and CTCL part of the larger boogeymen of the election.

Howard, with the Brennan Center, said the grants also allowed communities to fund their “dream election.” It allowed them to do things they wouldn’t normally do. For example, Coconino, AZ used its money to set up early voting on the Navajo Indian Reservation for the first time.

We asked for grant agreements and interviewed election directors. They told us they needed help because Congress failed to deliver a second payment. “Congress really failed our election officials,” said @LizlHoward with the @BrennanCenter.

The county also bought high-speed printers & envelope sorters. It took them 36 hours to count 150,000 ballots. W/out the equipment & manpower, it would have been a week or more, Turner said. "Honestly, I don’t know what we would have done without [the grant]," he said.

Election Administrators, their staff and volunteers are the unsung heroes of the election. As @geoffhing pointed out, they had to think critically about managing an election during a pandemic.
