Modesto is often known its negative press, but as a citizen and small-business owner I know there’s a lots of positive things happening, too. We must celebrate our successes, share not only our challenges but highlight our triumphs as well. Let us all be proudly proactive and shout out the benefits of living in such an amazing community.

Modesto Bee, as a major player in both online as well as print media, we call on you to publish less of the negative press on our citizens, businesses and community-based organizations but focus more the amazing progress being made in our community that heretofore has been under reported.
