About Canton Compass

john and april

In the spring of 2014, Canton native and editor John Fitts started Canton Compass to offer local residents a site that focuses on our town, its people, issues and events. Canton Compass covers local government, school events, businesses, community organizations and much more.

After accepting another job for much of 2015, John decided to re-focus his efforts on the site for 2016. The goal is to make the effort sustainable enough to provide a modest living. Readers can contribute at https://www.gofundme.com/canton-compass

About the Editor 

John grew up in Canton, graduated from Central Connecticut State University and has worked for several local news publications, including the New Britain Herald, Farmington Valley Post and Canton Patch.

John enjoys spending time with family as well as hiking, canoeing, fly-fishing and playing the guitar and mandolin.
