Re “Free Press in the Congressional Record,” March 2-4 edition:

I wanted to drop you a note of congratulations on recently receiving a citation — now memorialized in the Congressional Record — from 4th District Congressman A. Donald McEachin commemorating the newspaper’s 25th anniversary.

Many thanks to you and our beloved Free Press founder and former editor Raymond H. Boone for not only reporting the news, but always highlighting the very best in us, contrary to your mainstream contemporaries. The Richmond Free Press has always sought to inform, educate and enlighten our people and remains a constant source of pride for our community.

Congratulations on reaching such an important milestone. Looking forward to the next 25 years!
