Weekly Newsletter • June 24, 2022

Hi <<First Name>>,

Welcome to this week’s issue of the Alameda Post newsletter. Articles this week include controversy over the application to block construction of the McKay Ave. Wellness Center, City Council approves the plan to resurface Grand Street, the meaning of Pride, and much more.

I’d like to ask you to please share our posts and articles on social media. It really helps us to ensure that our community sees our stories and articles. Our goal is to provide Alameda with accurate and timely information. Your shares help, because many social media algorithms do not show every post to our followers. When you can, please share our content with your friends on NextDoor, on Twitter, in Facebook groups and your feed, on LinkedIn or in an email. Your friends will surely appreciate the information. And we appreciate the help. Thanks!
