The team of reporters is committed to providing information that informs and engages our community in the decisions that affect us all." - Teresa Alvarado, Pacific Gas & Electric, Vice President, South Bay & Central Coast Region

"Who do you trust? That cry for honest news, especially locally focused, is being answered by San José Spotlight, published by local community leaders covering hometown issues.
