While mass media and social media are all eyes on Washington, Voice of OC is fiercely committed to putting residents in a position to be their own independent watchdogs in Orange County.

Civic participation is crucial to a functioning democracy and every day your local government agencies are making decisions that impact your life. Your tax dollars, your children’s education, your health and your community. Take a look at some of our stories from the past week:

  • We continue to offer the best unfettered truth around the sale of Angel Stadium. This includes a preview of Tuesday’s Council vote, a discussion amongst more than a dozen experts and a full archive of detailed, investigative coverage.
  • Nonpartisan and probing coverage of the San Clemente officer-involved shooting.
  • A review of candidates seeking election to the Santa Ana Council following our publisher’s moderation of two related open debates.
  • Consistent coverage of school reopenings and a lack of COVID-19 transparency.

Please consider donating to Voice of OC today so we can continue and expand our reporting.
