The Press News Editor Kelly J. Kaczala and investigative reporter Melissa Burden won a second place award in The Press Club of Cleveland’s 2013 Excellence in Journalism awards.

Kaczala and Burden won in the non-daily public service category for their story “Levy revenue would go toward salaries, programs,” that appeared in The Press before last November’s election. The story questioned the wisdom of six local public bodies asking voters to pass new levies on the ballot at a time when local government wages had been outpacing private sector income in Lucas County, and the median household income, population, number of businesses and per capital income had all been dropping in the last four years.
