Santa Maria Times - Members

Welcome to our first newsletter, exclusively for our members.

We’ll use this space each week to share some of our best work, to take you behind the scenes on our reporting or to give you a head’s up on some coverage you’ll be seeing in the days ahead.

You might notice that we use the term “members.” That means we’re in this together. Whether you live in town, or are reading from afar, we value your investment in us and in our community.

Thanks for supporting local journalism. We look forward to seeing you here every week.
