Brent Richter

Brent Richter is a full-time news reporter at the North Shore News who covers municipal council, police and crime, fire, rescues and whatever else lands on his desk.

When he's not writing news stories or sitting in council chambers, Brent is daydreaming about craft beer, video games and other things he doesn't spend nearly enough time focusing on.

He welcomes your questions, story ideas, opinions and slow cooker recipes.
