Milpitas Community Center
Milpitas Town Hall: Join us tonight to tell us what matters to you.
If you’re in or near Milpitas, please consider joining journalists from The Milpitas Post and The Mercury News on Wednesday evening for a conversation about the issues you’d like to see us cover and the ways local journalism is changing.
Milpitas Community Center – Auditorium
457 E. Calaveras Blvd., Milpitas, CA 95035
What’s on the Agenda?
– Short update on recent changes in our newsrooms
– How journalism is changing locally and nationwide
– News coverage in the months to come
First, we need to do a better job of listening. So we’re launching Town Hall sessions around the Bay Area. Recent changes to The Milpitas Post (which we publish weekly) disappointed some residents, including Mayor Rich Tran, who posted on Facebook about the need for quality coverage. He’s right. So if you’re in or near Milpitas, please consider joining us at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Milpitas Community Center. We’ll start with quick updates on what’s changing in our newsrooms and spend the bulk of the evening hearing what issues are most important to you and should be the focus of our coverage. We’ll announce other locations soon, so let me know if your city or town should be next. More on the Mercury News.
