I’m grateful for the support over the years and am excited for the next six years, and more.
Please continue to share SCNO with neighbors.
Unlike many local media outlets, I’m not motivated by money. I don’t get paid and I don’t have advertising.
My motivation is personal and professional.
I started this site in 2016 because many community members said they can’t rely on other news sources. The Mercury News doesn’t really understand the Mission City and they never have.
So, that’s why I write and keep this site going. Thank you to the Mission City for all your support Over the last six years. Here’s to another six years and millions more viewers.
Congratulations Robert and thank you so much for providing this valuable Santa Clara service!
You are doing an invaluable service for the citizens of SC by providing news that is NOT fiction.
Although no longer a resident, I’m deeply saddened by the takeover of the City Council by the 49ers. The 49ers spent $2.9 Million to elect Council members who have NO integrity and flagrantly ignore the interests of the citizens of the city. Sad also, that SC citizens fell for a phony “diversity” campaign and elected this Council. As a result, Santa Clara News Online is the only local source of real news of the 49er situation.
Happy Birthday SCNO!🎂 Happy Anniversary!🍰🎉 Thanks for awesome work.😊
Pulitzer for the “Bad Mall Santa” headline!
Happy Anniversary Robert
Congratulations Robert – I don’t know what the Santa Clara citizens would do without you these last couple of years…you have shown truth and transparency to an otherwise sad and cloudy time. Thanks again.
Congratulations. The fact you have pissed off a lot of people means you are doing your job, IMHO.
