A Little Transparent Self-Promotion

So apparently, we are a “news outlet.”  At least according to OCTA’s most recent weekly newsletter:

Feb. 20 & Feb. 21 – The Capistrano Dispatch, Orange County Register, San Juan Capistrano Patch and Rancho Ortega Blog were among the news outlets to report on the Feb. 20 groundbreaking ceremony for the I-5 Ortega Highway Interchange, an $86.2-million improvement project.

Thank you for the mention, OCTA.  We’re happy to help!  You can read the entire OCTA newsletter here, including a tribute to retiring OCTA CEO Will Kempton.  Kempton has been at the helm of OCTA since August 2009, and he will retire this week to lead Transportation California, a nonprofit transportation industry association.
