We Want Your Stories

The Milpitas Beat is busy cooking up lots of brand new content. Keep watching this space for updates. Some highlights of what we’ll soon be publishing include:


  • In-depth Election Coverage, complete with Milpitas candidate interviews & reports from all candidates’ campaign trails.
  • Up-to-date info on Crime & Public Safety, courtesy of our ongoing communications with The Milpitas Police Department.
  • Inspiring, electric coverage of our city’s vast Youth Sports Culture (which has never gotten close to the attention it deserves).


All around Milpitas, we keep hearing our friends and neighbors ask, “What can we do to help?”, in regard to The Milpitas Beat.

For starters, please share this website around with your network. Let everyone know where to find us, and tell them to subscribe to our FREE weekly newsletter, to stay on top of all the latest news.

ALSO — and we’re spreading word of this everywhere we go: We Need Your Stories. Seriously: Our Door Is Open. We can’t keep our fingers on the pulse of Milpitas without allies in all corners. We want your light news. We want your heavy news. We want your exciting news. We want your troubling news. You don’t have to write it (although content submissions are certainly welcome), you just have to briefly describe it, and leave the rest to our judgment.

And note, always, that we have a serious positivity bias. Which is not to say that we’ll hide the truth, just that our prevailing goal is to approach every subject we report on with sincerity, humanity, and depth.

We want to reflect Milpitas’ vibrant and ignited culture right back to it. And we can only do so with your active help and input.

No story is too big or too small. We won’t be able to follow all leads or act on all tips, but we’ll always be respectful and receptive, and paying close attention to whatever you wish to share or draw our attention to.

Our door is open. We’re at Milpitas’ service.

We look forward to staying in touch with all of you.
