New at the City Desk
My name is Lucian McCarty and I am taking over the City Desk at The Saratogian. I have been with the paper for six months now working on Saratoga County issues but with Patrick moving over to the world of public radio, I am moving into his former beat.
I have a bachelor's degree in Journalism with a minor in Political Science and I've been writing for newspapers for the past five years in New Hampshire and in Oswego but this is my first blog so it is a little strange using the pronoun "I" when I type.
I've actually been covering the city since Patrick left, but reporters at the paper have been stretched somewhat thin with the departure of Patrick and Mareesa Nicosia so close to one another-- it's only been Paul Post and I since then as full-time reporters.
This week, though, we have the new addition of Michael Cignoli and Suzanna Louri — who has been working on a part-time basis - is going full-time, so we will have some breathing room.
As such, I wanted to introduce myself to the blog-world and to all of our readers.
If anyone would like to contact me for any reason, my phone number is 583-8729 extension 221 and my e-mail address is email@example.com.
I look forward to being a part of the community and am always happy to hear from readers.
