Welcome to THE SECRET NEWS!
THE SECRET NEWS reflects a better vision for Emeryville, one that addresses the needs and desires of the people who live and work here.
Citizens are demanding better schools, quality housing and jobs, more parks, and neighborhoods safe from excessive traffic, crime, pollution, and noise.
The goal of THE SECRET NEWS is to promote intelligent, meaningful discussion about how to make our city better, providing a voice to residents often ignored by the people in power — and to hold that power to account.
We stole it from George Carlin:
The Secret News

Good Evening ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for the secret news.
Here’s the secret news:
All people are afraid.
No one knows what they’re doing.
Everything is getting worse.
Some people deserve to die.
Your money is worthless.
No one is properly dressed.
At least one of your children will disappoint you.
The system is rigged.
Your house will never be completely clean.
All teachers are incompetent.
There are people who really dislike you.
Nothing is as good as it seems.
Things don’t last.
No one is paying attention.
The country is dying.
God doesn’t care.
