Hello! I am pleased to introduce myself as your new Newtown Patch Editor.
You will see me around in as many places as I cover in a day, every day, but Newtown Patch will function best with your help and your involvement. Be sure to enter in all of your Announcements and Events, so we can be sure to cover them, post them on the homepage, and promote them.
I am here to serve you. This is your town, and no one knows it better than you do. Together, as a team, we can make sure all of the information is getting out, all of the time.
If you happen to find yourself in the center of a breaking news story, call me at 203-543-9720. I will get there ASAP. Breaking News can include fires, floods, acts of god and unexpected acts of man. A driver hitting a telephone pole that knocks out power, a cow wandering down Main Street, car accidents; if it makes you say, WOW! I want to know, and so does everyone else.
Put my number in your cell phone so you don't have to go looking for it in an emergency. 203-543-9720.
I have been working for Patch for nearly two years. In Danbury, I covered education, council meetings, photo galleries and Mom stories for a year. As a regional reporter, I covered 10 towns for several months before I became Guest Editor for Bethel Patch. After five months, I have been asked to cover Newtown. I will be still be working with both Patches still, but reporting almost solely in Newtown.
I love news, all kinds of news, and I will be happy to hear what kind of news you love to read.
You can look forward to reading about Land Conservation, Planning and Zoning issues, Public Works, Town Government news and Education. I also have a soft spot for local heroes, animal and human interest stories, nonprofits and businesses.
If you or someone you know is doing something you think is really cool, send me an email and tell me about it. Let's do a story!
Having been a professional photographer, you can also look forward to galleries and videos.
Again, I am here to serve you, so let me know what is important to you.
I am so thrilled to be here and I cannot wait to meet you. And remember, if you think you have breaking news or even just an interesting story, be sure to let me know. Let's make Patch your best hometown go-to source for everything you think is important.
Editor, Newtown Patch
