 “I started Glendora City News as a way to bridge the gap between residents and current decisions, community events and breaking news. Glendora, as a small city, deserves a virtual forum where residents can congregate to get up to date community information and have a voice.

 “As communication gets faster in our world, social media has made it very easy for people in both large markets and small, to share information with their neighbor or across the world instantly and simultaneous.

 “This method is the backbone of why Glendora City News was founded on Social Media first, rather than just a traditional website.”
