Changing beats — again

I am adding the Warren County and cops and courts beats and losing the city of Glens Falls beat. 

Sometimes it seems that the only constant in life is change and that especially applies to the news business.

As some of you may know already, veteran Post-Star crimes and courts and Warren County reporter Don Lehman has left the paper to take a job as director of public affairs for the county. I am going to be shifting to take over much of his beat.

My beat has undergone some changes since I started at The Post-Star nearly seven years ago. I started as education reporter and sometimes would fill in on cops stuff or other assignments when needed, including some of the heated Thurman Town Board meetings.

Along the way, I picked up the village and town of Lake George when there were some reporter departures. When Maury Thompson retired, I took over the city of Glens Falls beat and relinquished the school reporting duties. I also picked up coverage of the NY-21 Congressional District just before the 2018 Democratic primary, when nearly a dozen Democrats were seeking the right to challenge U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik.

I got back on the education beat twice since then after other reporter departures.

With this latest reshuffling, I am handing the Glens Falls city beat to Will Doolittle. I will still be involved on Glens Falls stuff at the county level.

I will still be covering education, politics and some Lake George and economic development stuff too.

Thus begins a new chapter.
