About California News Nugget

The California News Nugget was launched in early 2019 in an effort to bring you nuggets of information from across the State of California. Our focus is on everything we find interesting around the state and hope to put it in one place.

The goal of this site is to raise awareness of what is going on in the State capital and what our local leaders are up to such as the bills they introduce, public safety education and other tidbits of information from local jurisdictions.

This publication is the brainchild of Mike Burkholder, Publisher of eastcountytoday.net which covers local news in Contra Costa County—that site launched in 2012.

Burkholder launched this site to focus more on state issues that were not necessarily relevant to the audience at eastcountytoday. Thus, wanted to launch a new website that would provide relevant daily news to people interested in the happenings around the State of California.

Is this website a news website or a blog?
Call us what you wish, it doesn’t matter as long as the information gets out to the public and shared–we will leave it up to our readers to determine what we are.

We provide news reporting, opinions, features, and photographs of local happenings. We strike to be independent, timely, accurate, honest, and information is helpful to the community. Lastly, we hope to supply information that other local media is choosing not to publish. So are we a website or a blog? That is for you to decide.
