Thanks for supporting The Alamedan!

Michele Ellson

Last month we took a little bit of a break to enjoy the holidays and to provide you more of the news you need in 2013, with our final post of the year an appeal to readers for the support we'll need to continue making sure we can keep Alameda covered. I'm excited to say that we raised $980 over the holiday season. I'd like to offer my heartfelt thanks to Stephanie Lipow, Connie Turner, Nicole Marcucci, advisory board member and blogger Mort Chalfy, Janet S. Deutsch, Susan Krauss, Marilyn Schumacher, Jim Pruitt and Patricia and Roger Baer. I really appreciate your support and will be working extra hard this year to make sure The Alamedan continues to provide the coverage that moved you to invest in what we're doing.

Donors who contribute $100 or more to our efforts receive one of our limited edition Alamedan T-shirts, and as a special thank-you for donors who have contributed $250 or more through the end of this month, I'll be hosting a coffee in February to let you know what we've got planned for 2013.

If you're interested in supporting our newsgathering efforts, you can contribute online or send a check made out to our fiscal sponsor, Community Initiatives (with Alameda Community News Project in the register), 354 Pine Street Suite 700, San Francisco, CA 94104.

Thanks again for supporting us, Alameda. And if you've got comments, questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me at
