Dunwoody Patch launched on Nov. 18, 2010, a tragic day in the young city’s history.
I was prepping stories for the launch of the site, which was to be Nov. 19, when I heard early news reports stream in about the shooting in Dunwoody Village.
We launched a day early to bring the news that Russell ‘Rusty’ Sneiderman had been murdered.
Since then, not only has Dunwoody Patch closely followed that story, we’ve covered lively city elections, the city’s development of several major plans, new local business openings and profile local people and groups.
I have enjoyed getting to know Dunwoody, working with and getting to know the people that make up this city and writing stories about the residents, places and organizations in this community.
Thank you for supporting this site as we launched, sending in your story ideas and for becoming part of our online community. I hope I served you well.
I’m moving to South Africa at the end of this week with my girlfriend, as she takes on a new job, and I look to continue working as a journalist overseas.
Please keep in touch. Feel free to reach out to me at PeterNCox@gmail.com.
I’m handing the site off to the capable hands of Interim Editor Jason Massad. Jason, who lives in Dunwoody, knows the community well from his days working as an editor at Reporter Newspapers.
Prior to moving to Georgia in 2010, Jason worked as a journalist for more than a decade at daily newspapers in Montana, California and Arizona. A native of Summerville, S.C., he graduated with a journalism degree from the University of South Carolina.
If you have story ideas, announcements or comments, you can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again for your readership and support.
