Good morning, East Haven.
It’s my pleasure, as regional editor for Patch in South Central Connecticut, to introduce your new local editor at East Haven Patch.
I’ll let Julie Weisberg introduce herself below, and only say that we are very excited that she's joining our team. Julie is your go-to person in East Haven for:

It truly has been a fun, fascinating few months for me operating East Haven Patch as guest editor in your deeply involved, vibrant, community-oriented town. My email address (email@example.com) remains the same and I hope to continue to hear from you.
Hello, East Haven!
I am honored and excited to be named the new local editor to serve this beautiful shoreline town. I come to you as as an experienced, award-winning journalist, who has spent most of the last decade navigating my way through a variety of Connecticut newsrooms.
An upstate New York native and longtime Connecticut resident, I am excited about my recent move to East Haven: there is no substitution for living within the community you serve as a journalist, particularly when it comes to connecting and engaging with readers.
Community journalism has always been my focus, and I am excited to continue that here in East Haven.
When I interviewed for this job, I was told over and over that East Haven is a newsy town. And so I am looking forward to keeping up with East Haven's news pulse, while maintaining that hyper-local, community focus Patch is famous for.
I am excited to share the town's stories with readers, and to continue to maintain East Haven Patch's role as an important information forum for you to share and contribute.
I look forward to working with all of you. Never hesitate to contact me with a news tip, a concern or just to say hello.
