The Stratford Star is the only media outlet serving the Stratford, Connecticut community with a weekly newspaper, a comprehensive website and social media connections including Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
We focus strictly on Stratford and keep an eye on those running the town and spending the taxpayers’ money. We analyze issues and provide late-breaking news.
Our regular departments are police arrests, sports, senior activities, schools, entertainment, obituaries, business, religion, recreation, health, and social and community events.
The Star also has a lively opinion section where community members write Letters to the Editor and comment on our website articles. There are opportunities for longer Op-Ed columns, and, of course, we state our own editorial opinions about all things Stratford.
The Star binds the community together and is proud to do so.
