This week our staff bid farewell to our government reporter James Harrison.
James is a great reporter and writer, and his passion and enthusiam for life made him a pleasure to work with. While we're sad to see a member of the original Nooga.com team move on, we're content knowing great things are in store for he and his family as they relocate to Asheville, N.C.
Wish James goodbye and good luck: @jharrisonAVL
And what of the position James leaves behind?
Our proud answer to that question is: David Morton.
We're sure lots of people are already familiar with David from his time as editor of the community journalism startup Chattarati.com.
Chattarati was known for creating interactive Web apps using public records and received positive coverage from Harvard's Nieman Lab and the Reynolds Journalism Institute for its community-based reporting.
We believe David is a perfect fit for what we're trying to accomplish at Nooga.com and that his talents will take coverage of the area's government and political scene to the next level.
David officially takes over the position Oct. 14, so until then, you can welcome him to the team via Twitter (@itypewords) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
