Readers, please join me in welcoming Colleen Platt as the new local editor for Point Pleasant Patch. She will work with Denise Di Stephan, who began work on Monday as the region's community editor.
Colleen has worked as editor of the Brick and Barnegat-Manahawkin Patches, reporting on a number of subjects, including enterprise features, personality profiles and breaking news.
Colleen worked several years for The Asbury Park Press, where she served as a metro reporter and covered Long Beach Island.
She knows how much our local Patch communities care about what’s happening in town, and she’s committed to continuing the coverage that keeps you up to date on Point Boro and Point Beach issues.
Above all, she knows Patch works best when our communities join in the local conversation.
Look for Colleen around town and don’t hesitate to contact her (firstname.lastname@example.org, 856-304-6814) with tips, story ideas or feedback.
Thanks for being part of the Patch community.
Tom Davis, Patch regional editor, Jersey Shore & South Jersey
