September 29, 2013 (San Diego's East County)--Following our recent special report, we’ve received some good news for East County veterans. Our investigation into County Veterans’ Services found that rural veterans were not getting their fair share of services.
After our story aired on KNSJ radio last week, Supervisor Jacob’s office contacted us. A staffer informed us that Supervisor Jacob held a meeting last week with County Veterans Service and asked for more equitable staffing. The staffer informed East County Magazine that Supervisor Jacob plans to introduce a measure before the Supervisors that would bring County Veterans Service representatives to County libraries throughout our region – including the most rural areas.
