When I was first offered the opportunity to create Richfield Patch for the community I thought, "Richfield? Really? What's happening here?"
, I seemed to be a bit jaded to all the town offered. I dug around a little bit and found a plethora of happenings around the city. Then I thought, "Can I do it?"
Once the interview process ended and I was asked to make my final decision on the town I would cover, without hesitation, I chose Richfield. Because I thought, "Who better than me to do this me. This is my town."
As it turns out, it was one of the best decisions I'd ever made. Not many people are able to make a career doing something they love, while also giving back to the community that produced them.
The best thing? Richfield Patch is a resource created for the community by the community, which is exactly what the goal of Patch is. While I may write many of the articles, it's the readers who share their thoughts, engage in dialogue, send news tips and give their support who keep it going.
Cheers and here's to many more years working together to inform the community. Thank you for letting Richfield Patch invade your laptops, PCs and smartphones.
