If you haven't heard yet, there were mass layoffs throughout the Mercury News Organization and the staff of their community newspapers division was gutted. This would include the Campbell Reporter, which often helped spread news about things happening in or affecting Downtown Campbell. Small downtowns like ours rely on community engagement to remain healthy and vibrant and we will miss the Campbell Reporter and its sister publications. The hard work of their underpaid reporters and photojournalists have played an important role in helping Downtown Campbell come out of its days as a too quiet downtown of antique shops that was deserted after 6pm.
To all of the women and men (I call out the women first for good reason) who've helped to create a more engaged and informed community, we've appreciated your dedication and professionalism. Thank you for your work in service to our communities. Good luck in your new adventures and may we meet again.
