Some New Faces and Names on Albany Patch

Please welcome Charles Burress, Analisa Harangozo and Dixie Jordan.

Starting this week you will see some new faces and names on Albany Patch.

Charles Burress, Analisa Harangozo and Dixie Jordan will be working as a team to manage Albany Patch and some other nearby Patch community websites. 

Charles worked many years as a staff writer and editor at the San Francisco Chronicle before joining Patch as the editor of El Cerrito Patch. Analisa, who has edited Patch's Alameda and Castro Valley websites, brings considerable expertise in video and social media to the team. Dixie, who has edited Patch's Alameda, Piedmont and Rockridge sites, published the regional magazine Parents' Press for many years before joining Patch. (She also has the rare distintion of being a true Albany native — born in Albany Hospital, roughly where the library is now.)

To reach anyone on the team, send an email to Albany@patch.com.

Nice to see the identify-the-photo contest return. Emilie's reign coincided with Albany making maybe too much news: We had occupations, teachers and other adults behaving badly, U.C. behaving as usual, and contentious city council meetings during elections for the majority of the council and a self-imposed tax increase. Emilie successfully promoted the Patch as the community's safe place to discuss these and many other issues. The Patch discussion boards are now dominated by loud strangers who, as someone pointed out, couldn't find Solano Avenue on a map. It remains to be seen if the Patch can still function as a safe place for community discourse.

Charles Burress and Analisa Harangozo have already been involved in the website and are not "new". Ms. Harangozo was the editor of Albany patch for a while after Emilie left, and Mr. Burress has already been filling in repeatedly. Please take a picture of a something relevant in the city and write a 40 word caption for it...that would be a lot more newsworthy than this.
