I am excited to announce that voting is officially under way for the Mirror’s Best of Federal Way awards.

Now in its 20th year, this annual contest celebrates the best local businesses, people and places in Federal Way. Readers can fill out ballots the old-fashioned way in our print edition — or visit bestoffederalway.com and cast your votes online.

To sweeten the deal, participating readers will be eligible for a drawing to win one of two $250 gift cards for groceries and gas at Fred Meyer.

Voting ends Jan. 31. The Mirror will announce the winners, along with Federal Way’s Citizen of the Year, at a public reception March 7. Stay tuned for details.

New look for the Mirror

The Mirror has launched an updated version of federalwaymirror.com that’s sleeker and easier to navigate, especially on a mobile device.

Beginning in 2018, the Mirror’s print edition will undergo a redesign as part of an overall effort to bring you the best local news and ads in the best packaging possible.

In the meantime, please let us know what else you’d like to see in the Mirror and what we can do better. The Mirror is proud to have been part of this community for almost two decades, and your feedback is important to us.

On behalf of the Mirror family, have a Happy Thanksgiving — and thank you for reading!
