Thank you, SPJ voters!

I’m humbled. This weekend, the members of the Society of Professional Journalists elected me and Claire Regan to join the national board as at-large directors. I accept the honor with humility. Three excellent candidates ran and did not get as many votes. I’m not saying they “lost” because they didn’t. Haisten Willis, Andrew Seaman andContinue reading “Thank you, SPJ voters!”
