Meet Your Expanded Patch Team

Dixon Patch has added a new cadre of editors who are here to cover, connect and serve this community.

You've been coming to Dixon Patch since we launched to get unique, quality reporting, engaging stories and video, and a place to connect and converse with your community. Now there is a bigger team devoted to Dixon Patch.

Cody Kitaura, Joshua Staab and Justin Cox have been local editors with Patch since 2010 and 2011, cultivating and nurturing sites in Dixon, Davis, Fair Oaks, Carmichael, Elk Grove and Rosemont. 

Along with others in Sacramento, Yolo, Placer and Solano counties, the three editors have worked with their fellow Patch editorial teams in a number of capacities, covering myriad news beats and developing thoughtful and engaging content. In short, this is not their first rodeo.

Together, this team of journalists hopes to bring the same caliber of content readers have grown to expect from their respective sites and more. They'll be joined by Associate Regional Editor Genevieve Bookwalter, who brings years of experience and wisdom, and Community Editor Eve Pearlman, who was the local editor of Alameda Patch.

So let us take a minute to catch readers up to speed.

What's Next for Dixon Patch? 

Dixon Patch will continue to provide high-quality reporting and engaging stories and videos. But it’s also interactive, and we're hoping you will help us by providing fresh ideas, sharing community connections, and milk every last ounce of potential out of it. 

News is no longer a one-way road in which us journalists only deliver content to you readers. Technology has changed that. This town is yours, and we're challenging you to play a role in the sharing of news and information. Here are just a few ways to do that on Suisun City Patch, all of which are just a click away.

We’ll always be here reporting on issues. But we don’t want you to just sit back and wait around while we do it. You’re sitting on too much valuable information, and we want you to know that this site is a landing place for all things Dixon – whether it be a government scandal, a little league game or an upcoming festival. 

Bookmark this site right now and remember that the Dixon community is just a few clicks away from you at all times. Also make sure to sign up for our newsletter and like our page on Facebook. And share the site with your friends, family and neighbors!

What happened to Lindsey?
Gary Erwin November 20, 2012 at 07:05 PM
Lindsey has been very good.... I hope she still has time for Patch.
Greg Coppes November 20, 2012 at 08:16 PM
It's my understanding she got down sized. The Patch didn't really see a need for someone local to be a reporter. Someone from Davis or Elk Grove could do a better job.
Gary Erwin November 20, 2012 at 09:17 PM
Well, that is horrible.... She was doing a great job. Her writings were not sugar coated nor biased. I thought that had a winner on the hook with her. Humm, the Patch should think twice about this decision.

This really doesn't make sense. How did the staff "expand" if the three are still editing their own local Patch. If the news is not about Dixon specifically, what's the point?
Marcy van der Linden November 21, 2012 at 12:47 AM
Funny how you have 3 new people that expanded the Dixon Patch, but yet not one of them lives here in the city of Dixon. So I would really like to know how you guys are going to get your up to date or breaking news in Dixon? Lindsey was your local girl and now she's not on here anymore. Dixon Patch I feel that your online newspaper is going to slowly sink!
Gary Erwin November 21, 2012 at 05:18 AM
Humm.... It would be interesting to see Lindsey writing for the Tribune.... We should not forget that the Tribune is the printed history of the town...100 years from now you should be able to read articles from the Tribune. This is not the case with the other town rags.

The future of journalism is the internet. Right now in Dixon the Patch is the only game in town. Everyone knows that competition helps to improve any product.
Bil Paul November 21, 2012 at 05:57 AM
The ideal would be to have one editor/reporter dedicated to Dixon alone.
Gary Erwin November 21, 2012 at 06:05 AM
All the Tribune needs to do is become electronic... Fact remains we have over 100 years of our towns history still around thanks to the Tribune. I don't really expect to see todays Patch being preserved that long. I remember the Tribune was a very good paper in the late 70's...they had many staff writers...
