I’m honored to be the new editor of City News. Through City News I’m hoping to connect with each of you, to bring you closer to your community and maybe even tempt you to try something new.
Supporting local businesses is so important to a thriving community. Often, it’s the small business owners who support school functions, civic clubs and sponsor city events.
These entrepreneurs are critical to the health and wellbeing of our communities. It’s wonderful to support these folks and I hope you’ll join me in celebrating them through City News.
I’d like to know what bits of info interest you the most: Upcoming events? New businesses? A little of everything?
