With the addition of new reporters, we have reshuffled the cities that we now cover. Just in case you have news tips or want to get ahold of your reporter, here is who is covering what:
Rebecca Kimitch: South El Monte, El Monte, Rosemead*
Daniel Tedford: Glendora, La Verne, Azusa
Tania Chatila: Baldwin Park, La Puente
Amanda Baumfeld: Montebello, Covina, Education
Bethania Palma: Hacienda Heights, Rowland Heights, Diamond Bar, Walnut
Jennifer McLain: West Covina, Irwindale, Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Water
*I have to admit that I am feeling a little sentimental about leaving Rosemead. The city went through a lot since I began covering nearly a year and a half ago. The sexual harassment lawsuit, the hiring of Bonifacio Garcia, the changes among management and in City Hall, and the number of developments that came out of the city all made for good stories.
It is rewarding, though, to see how the city has progressed during that time. Agenda packets are now given to the press, the meetings are going to be broadcast online starting next month, the City Chambers are complete. Overall, there is more transparency in City Hall.
Thanks for all the good stories Rosemead!
