Julia writes, “As board chair, I’m looking forward to working with a strong and engaged board and, in conjunction with a talented and hardworking editor and staff, to building on recent accomplishments. I’m also looking forward to helping further strengthen the paper’s financial position and to diving into succession planning initiatives. Local news is vitally important to community health and I feel fortunate to be involved.”
