In Summer 2011, we launched "Alameda County Connections," a bi-monthly online newsletter for residents to learn more about Alameda County – including good news and the challenges faced by County government. In March 2016, we redesigned the newsletter and launched Alameda County Community Connection. We redesigned the newsletter to bring a fresh, more streamlined look to our newsletter, which we hope will appeal to our readers. Community Connection will strive to provide you with important information about Alameda County’s activities, along with interesting stories about our employees and departments. We hope you will enjoy this newsletter.
