Somerville Patch's Loss Is ResiStat's Gain!


Denise Taylor

Denise Taylor, Editor of Somerville.Patch.Com, posted the following letter this morning announcing, both, her departure from the online news source and her arrival to the ResiStat Department of City Hall. I would like to wish Denise the best of luck in her new venture and look forward to working with her as a member of the ResiStat team.



Dear Patch Readers,

Once in Somerville, forever in Somerville. This may be my last day as Editor of Somerville Patch, but I’m not going far, so you’ll still see me around.

After covering our ever-active city for Patch—and living here the last 19 years—I can’t say enough how impressed I am with this town and its endless supply of motivated and interesting residents. Where else can you tap maple syrup in the middle of the city, find an artist or arts event on almost every corner it seems, see a whole town unite behind a wounded police officer, and top off the year (and your sandwich) with a celebration of Marshmallow Fluff?

Our very capable guest editor Christopher Treacy will make sure Patch keeps covering what matters to you in the coming weeks until a new editor steps in. Please send him your story ideas: ctreacy2010@yahoo.com.

As for me, at the end of the month, I’ll start as the New Media/ResiStat Coordinator for the City. What does that mean? I’ll be doing my best to keep you informed of City initiatives and to find ways to make it easier for you to participate in proposing, planning and shaping City efforts. Stuff happens in Somerville because we make it happen, and I’ll just be trying to grease the wheels.

Stay in touch: dtaylor617@gmail.com or look for me on Facebook.

Yours truly,
Denise Taylor
