It’s almost been two years since we launched Dixon Patch with incredible support. My time in Dixon was filled with many memorable moments and stories.
But now it's time for me to embark on a new journey. As the Associate Regional Editor, I will be a team leader for our Sonoma, Napa and Solano Patch sites.
I often tell people who ask about my previous life in Napa that I had no idea what was in store for me in Dixon. About the only thing that I knew of Dixon was that it was an agricultural town and it was on the way to Sacramento.
I often asked myself, “What type of news will come out of Dixon?” I was reluctant become the local editor for Dixon, but I am glad I did.
Ever since I there has not been a shortage of interesting stories to tell. You Dixonites care a lot about your schools, sports, the youth and the community as a whole.
You also care about the that’s happening in your town and are often alert when you hear the in town. Of course, we can’t forget about all of the interesting issues affecting Dixon, everything from development in town such as , to the incredible decisions being made to
Dixon is a town that loves its festivals, everything from the to and is a community that I am proud to have spent so many hours reporting on.
I will miss working alongside many of the familiar faces that I have come to know and I would especially like to thank them, without naming names because I am afraid to leave anyone out. But they have a pretty good idea of who they are.
My new position will have me traveling from one side of the county to the other and beyond. I will still be involved in Dixon, but in a different capacity. Debra Dingman, a capable and talented journalist and editor who was instrumental in helping us launch in Dixon, is now the site's guest editor. She is the owner of Nana and Company and The Write Mind Public Relations and is highly involved the business community of Dixon and in many other aspects of this great town.
I ask that you welcome Debra and treat her with warmth as she will have a challenging, but worthwhile, job ahead of her.
Debra can be reached through e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at (707) 301-0795. And all news tips can be sent directly to her.
I am grateful that Dixon embraced the site the way it did. It was never about this editor and what he posted, it was about the news that you wanted to see, the issues that you cared about and conversations that you wanted to have.
It’s your site, it’s your voice, and it can only get better and stronger.
