Two Years and Still Here — Happy Birthday, Citizens Journal!

What started out as group endeavor by the American Freedom Partnership, an organization which has since disbanded, is now a passion for those who run it and for its wonderful team of dedicated writers.  With a budget that would make shoestrings look generous, Citizens Journal, Ventura County, marks its second year.  We want to thank everyone who has contributed their time, their talent and their funds to our news site.  We will continue to work toward our goal of adding a balanced view to the news for Ventura County. 

Those of us at Citizens Journal want to thank our readers most of all.

Here’s to another year.  Happy birthday, Citizens Journal! authors:

Congratulations to the Citizen’s Journal and its team. You have done Ventura County a great service. May you have many years of success and great future publications.

We need to recognize our true conservative roots, and the Citizen’s Journal is always there to communicate that message. We can easily reject carpet bagging liberals if we know the truth. That is what America is all about. So keep up the good work Citizen’s Journal, and keep liberty alive in Ventura County.

The task of every citizen in our county is to tell government to back off, and the Citizen’s Journal will show us how.
