Sacramento is home. It always has been, and it always will be. Having lived here most of my life, I recognize Sacramento is a place where people hold a variety of opinions, live amid a rich environmental landscape and are part of diverse communities.

Sacramento is yours as much as mine, so if you have any questions or suggestions on how CapRadio should report on what´s happening, let me know.
