Like with the recent Summer Solstice – Citizens Journal Celebrated another Year of Publishing

We’ve been in operation six years since starting publication of Citizens Journal- Ventura County, AKA, AKA CJ, on June 21, 2013.  We want to thank our contributors, both financially and most assuredly, and we couldn’t be here without our writers, regulars like Sheryl Hamlin and Raven West to such extraordinary columnists like Victor Davis Hanson, Thomas Knapp, Michael Greer and Phil Erwin.  There are so many, excellent talents, like William Hicks, a regular in our comments section…so many it would be hard to name them all.  They are so appreciated by our publisher, George Miller, and myself, Editor-in-Chief, Debra Tash, Associate Editors Carol Miller and Deborah Baber Savalla, with a special hats off to our co-founder, Michael Hernandez. Finally, we want to thank our tens of thousands of readers!

An Interview of our publisher, George Miller by the excellent OurVenturaTV (they have LOTS of great stuff!):
