Almost exactly one year ago, I arrived in town as the new editor of the College Park Patch. We've come a long way since that first day, when I sat, terrified, at my first council meeting, wondering where was and why Councilman Perry kept talking about "magic money." (I still wonder that, actually.)
A lot has happened since then: There's been some serious news—, the —but we've had some fun times, too. I will always look back with fondness on my foray down (never again!), co-producing , crawling under the table at in pursuit of and during the area's "major" snowstorm.
But now the time has come for me to move on. It has long been a dream of mine to live in New York City, so when the opportunity arose to take over another Patch site in Little Neck, Queens, I knew the time was now. So while I will still be happily a part of the Patch family, I will no longer be the editor of the College Park Patch.
Not to worry, though. A very able successor will be taking my place shortly, and until then, you can reach out to Regional Editor Amy L. Kovac-Ashley (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any story ideas, comments, questions or concerns you might have.
It has been a great pleasure getting to know the people and places that make College Park much more than just a "livable community." I will certainly be keeping my eye on things here, and I hope you continue to look to Patch, as I will, for the best in local news.
