The Alamedan Editor Heads to New Venture

Michele Ellson announced her resignation as the editor of The Alamedan on June 16. Over the last three and one-half years Ellson established the gold standard for quality local news coverage. She is rightfully proud of what she and The Alamedan have accomplished.

The Alamedan is not going away. The site will continue to post blogs, letters to the editor, "Community Journal" pieces and event listings. Ellson asks that local writers continue to send blogs, story pitches and fundraising suggestions, all of which she will continue to edit and post.

The Alameda Sun has been The Alamedan’s print partner and will continue in that capacity. We will miss Ellson’s professionalism and her insight into local issues.
