Welcome to voiceofsandiego.org. We are a public-service, nonprofit news organization that focuses on in-depth and investigative reporting. We cover the issues that are crucial to the region's quality of life: its politics, educational system, environment, housing, economy and more. We don't try to be everything to everybody. We don't think we're the only place you're going to get news today. We know that in today's world you've got plenty of places to turn for national and international coverage, and there are other publications in San Diego doing work that we don't need to chase after or replicate. Those are all just a mouse click away. That's why we follow a simple maxim: We don't do a story unless we think we can do it better than anyone else or no one else is covering it. What does that mean? We work hard to add value to everything we do, offering you unique coverage that you can't get anywhere else. We don't follow the pack and try not to offer the same headlines that everyone else is offering.
