About Us


The East County Community Times was established as the next generation photojournalism publication. The Herald was a hard copy publication. The Times is an online publication with a similar style as the East County Herald. There are plenty of photos showing East County events.

We currently have local columnists as well as elected officials writing for the Times. We encourage our readers to let us know of events to cover. Our team covers local Chamber events; local council meetings; local, state, and federal elected representatives; non-profit organization events; East County community signature events; and other events of interest. Our team will be happy to add readers to our e-mailing list.

Dee Dean, owner/publisher of the East County Herald retired in 2018 after 20 years of publishing the Herald. I was a photojournalist for 9 years with the Herald. Dee also retired the Herald name as well. The Community Times was founded in 2019 to continue the photojournalist nature of the publication.
