One year ago, on March 14, 2012, I posted my very first article on SCL: a story on Stockton’s population shift over the past ten years. I am pretty sure no one read it, but I appreciated having an outlet to write about issues facing Stockton that I felt were important. SCL was started with the modest hope that maybe a handful of people would be interested in what I had to say. One year later, I am happy to report that I have met this goal and then some as I have been fortunate enough to publish nearly 80 articles reaching thousands of people. Not only have I been able to share my ideas with everyday Stocktonians, SCL has afforded me the opportunity to speak with many community stakeholders– such as elected officials, non profits and developers– to discuss the future of Stockton. So on SCL’s first birthday, I would like to say thanks to the people of Stockton for considering my viewpoints and sharing my ideas.
