Julia Shumway (City of Bend reporter)
Julia Shumway covers city government for the Bulletin. She comes to Central Oregon from Lincoln, Nebraska, where she just finished covering the 2017 legislative session for the Associated Press. She's also reported on local government in southeast Iowa, served as a thorn in the side of Arizona politicians as a political fact-checker at the Arizona Republic and brought fresh design ideas to Iowa's oldest newspaper, The Burlington Hawk Eye. Before graduating from Arizona State University with a bachelor's degree in journalism in 2015, she led ASU's student newspaper, The State Press, to becoming an entirely digital publication and doubled its reach in the process. When she's not reporting, Julia enjoys hiking, reading, cross-stitching and trying to catch up on dozens of podcasts.
