|Serving all of the desert cities and unincorporated areas of Riverside County in the Coachella Valley|
WHO WE AREWe are the desert’s new business and public affairs weekly newspaper, covering important news and issues that affect the valley.
The regional economy has evolved to the point where there needs to be a newspaper that looks at the real issues in all their complexity and doesn’t just skim the surface.
Everyone at The Public Record has lived here in the valley for many years, and we know virtually all the people who run our cities, largest businesses, and institutions. We know that issues of importance are far more complex than is usually acknowledged or presented.
Therefore we don’t practice “gotcha" journalism. We’re not looking to embarrass anyone. We’re more interested in the meaningful than the controversial. We want to be a platform for the exchange of ideas. We want to help the valley’s leaders get their messages out.
The Public Record is available by subscription for $59.95 for one year. Subscribers receive a printed paper every week and also have access to it electronically on our website.
