  • Kate Martin is the lead investigative reporter for Carolina Public Press, formerly with The News Tribune in Tacoma, Wash. Her passion for data and open records has led her to expose a school district’s misspending of taxpayer funds, reveal Tacoma's police surveillance technology and show how veterans are being left behind in Puget Sound's hot housing market.  Her work has led to the creation of three state laws and the resignation of three elected officials. @Katereports
