Mission

The Alexandria Times is Alexandria’s only locally owned, independent newspaper. We publish weekly and are distributed on Thursdays with both home and bulk delivery in 13 zip codes. Founded in 2005, we just celebrated our 10th anniversary. We offer both print and on-line editions and are the go-to source for news and advertising in the City of Alexandria. Our mission is to provide thorough coverage of news events through insightful, accurate reporting that promotes civic engagement, holds government accountable, entertains readers and generally informs the 140,000 residents of Alexandria. The Alexandria Times also provides a forum for public discussion. We are the only local news entity with an Alexandria-specific weekly editorial.
