How has the federal government shutdown affected you?

The Dayton Daily News is seeking to speak to people who aren’t federal workers about how they are being affected by the government shutdown and the pending debt ceiling crisis. As the stock market dips daily, are you worried that the stalemate will hurt your investment portfolios and retirement savings?

Will it influence your rates on a student loan or a mortgage? We want to talk to readers about how the shutdown is affecting their daily lives and their pocketbooks. If you would like to be part of the story, contact reporter Mary McCarty at or 937-225-2209.
