    We’ve been in operation over 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, Michael Hernandez and Raven West to such extraordinary columnists like Victor Davis Hanson, Thomas Knapp, Michael Greer, L. Neil Smith 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 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!):

    George Miller speaks about the Citizens Journal with George Alger.

    Citizens Journal provides objective online news and not so objective editorial opinion regarding things affecting Ventura County, CA.

    They report on issues vital to the community, including local governments, school boards, city councils, county supervisors, business and other local matters. They also put state, national and international events into perspective in how they affect our community.

    Would you please consider supporting volunteer-operated Citizens Journal’s REAL news in Ventura County with a donation or volunteering writing, editing, technical support, circulation or other services?

    Funds will be used to improve content quality and scope, expand circulation and meet operating expenses. While we are far cheaper to run than a dinosaur MSM tree-eating, fuel-guzzling “paper,” it still costs money to make this beast go. Presently, we are attempting to make a number of technical and digital marketing changes to increase our visibility and readership, but lack the needed in-house technical resources. So please help. We are chronically short of what we need to expand and improve. Imagine what we could do with more support.  Questions, comments? ….  [email protected]
