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.)
