It is with much excitement that I assume the role of editor at the Massapequan Observer. As my predecessor Joe Scotchie wrote last week, I have lived in Massapequa for many years, and I am thrilled to be reporting on my community. Since I moved to Massapequa, I have often said that both Massapequa and Massapequa Park are great communities. Whether enjoying lunch at All-American, a shake at Krisch’s, or just a walk down Park Boulevard, Massapequa has some many unique and charming things to enjoy and some terrific people who live here. And now I get to realize the dream of so many journalists by becoming the editor of my hometown paper.
My only hesitation is taking over for Joe, who is a fabulous writer and has earned both your respect and your trust. Fortunately, we will still be able to enjoy his work as Joe’s role at Anton is expanding and he will now be reporting on events that affect many communities. Joe’s writing will still be in the Massapequan Observer, and now other Anton publications as well.
I encourage you to reach out to me with your thoughts, your comments and your suggestions. The Massapequas are great communities and they deserve to have great news coverage. Let’s work together to make sure that continues.
