Welcome to the ContraCostaHerald.com, the news site of, by and for the people of Contra Costa County, California.
Like the herald angels we sing about each Christmas, a herald is an announcer. We are here to announce the news and information you might not find elsewhere, with you, the people as participants.
We welcome your input, articles, stories and photos of news, activities and events that happen in our county, which affect our lives each day. We want you to be informed of our county government agencies, their issues and actions, as well as other issues of city and local government agencies and to hold our elected and appointed officials accountable.
This is a sister website to the AntiochHerald.com, which has been in existence since October 2010 and is our second news venture, which first began in 2001 with the Antioch Press and then later the Pittsburg Press, Bay Point Press and Delta Post, which were all sold in 2005.
Be sure to subscribe for free with our Daily Email Update to receive links to our articles in your email account. Then like us on Facebook.com/cocoherald and follow us on Twitter @cocoherald, as well.
We look forward to serving you, beginning this week and to your participation in this news website.
The Herald Team
