Concord, CA (PRWEB) March 22, 2004
With an emphasis on local politics and community issues, a new weblog inspired by Benjamin Franklin, has launched in Northern California. Halfway to Concord (http://www.halfwaytoconcord.com) will cover politics in Contra Costa County and California.
Named after a term coined by Benjamin Franklin for inebriation, ÂHalfway to ConcordÂ evokes a time before mass media when local taverns were the place to learn about local news and to discuss issues of the day rather than have news and opinions massaged by corporate news services however ÂfairÂ or Âbalanced.Â
Halfway to Concord, edited by Bill Gram-Reefer, a hi-tech media relations professional based in Concord, CA, will cover electoral, education and welfare reform policy discussions, as well local and regional government issues, including news about community- and faith-based organizations that provide needed social services in the County and Northern California.
