  1. Good morning,

    I am the Project Manager for Keystone Crossroads, a statewide public media collaboration that you’ve listed above. We’re very pleased to be included, but as we are similar in structure/purpose to StateImpact, we would love to have our content also listed under the “Statewide” heading of your daily playbook. Would it be possible to make that change going forward?

    Thanks,
    Emily Gann
