Welcome!

The Public Record is the desert’s business and public affairs newspaper, focused exclusively on the Coachella Valley in eastern Riverside County. Each week we bring our readers the most important news and issues of business, government, and the community.

The Coachella Valley is unique, a fascinating tapestry of nine cities, unincorporated areas, tribal lands, and nature preserves, a place where natural beauty and dramatic growth live side by side. As one of the fastest-growing regions in California, it offers immense business opportunity while facing the challenge to grow responsibly and protect the quality of life that spurs this growth.

Here in the desert the best leaders of both the public and private sectors work together to overcome today’s challenges. Our mission is to encourage this spirit of cooperation by bringing our readers the news and issues of both while providing a platform for the exchange of ideas.

Our Readers

Our readership includes many of the Coachella Valley’s business, legal, and governmental leaders – the region’s most influential year-round residents. Unlike most local publications, we are not a tourist publication. Our readers live here – they run our cities, law firms, civic organizations, and large local businesses. They expect and deserve a publication that understands the complexity of the real issues and is dedicated to excellence in journalism. If you do too, join us!
