Hello, all. Your faithful editor here, with some news of a different sort.
I’ve been tapped to take over Oswego Patch, starting on Monday. I have big shoes to fill there—, who started that site, has been promoted to associate regional editor, which means he’s my boss now. Steve did a fantastic job with Oswego Patch, and I’ll admit I’m a little scared to take over from him. But I’m excited for the challenge as well.
After nearly 16 months in this role, I’ve had an incredible time running this site, and the best part of it has been getting to meet and talk with you guys, to hear and tell your stories. I’m going to miss it terribly.
But don’t worry, because I’m not going far.
And it’s not like I’m leaving Montgomery, either. I’ll still be contributing to this site regularly, and you’ll see my name in bylines all the time.
Montgomery Patch isn’t going anywhere, and you’ll still get regular features like Pat Torrance’s and Jeff Long’s from the Fox Valley Park District. And it will still be a place for the community to gather and exchange ideas.
As it has been since day one, Patch is all about you. I would still love for you to load your own announcements, events, photos and comments directly to the site. You can get in touch with us via Facebook and Twitter, and let us know what’s happening in town. If you own a business, you can in our directory. And if you feel so inclined, you can become a , bringing your voice directly to thousands of people.
I guess what I really want to say is thank you. Thanks for reading, thanks for writing in, thanks for trusting me to tell Montgomery’s stories. Thank you to everyone who made this site what it’s grown into over the past 16 months. Let's keep that momentum going.
I still live in Montgomery—that won’t change—and I’m grateful to be part of such a tremendous community. I'll definitely be around, and I’ll be seeing you.
