I've grown to love Mountain View dearly since it's my first home in California. You've been considerate to this new adventure called Patch and included me as part of your routine. And everyday you gave me the opportunity to learn more about the city, its companies and of course the people too.
I've been privileged to tell your stories—from real estate development to school achievement to even the loss of loved ones—and I've strived to do it accurately and humbly each time.
But good things often do come to an end and I have accepted a position that allows me to focus more on technology news, which means you haven't seen the last of me yet!
Even without me at the helm, Mountain View Patch will continue to provide you local news because the site is not about me but about all of us. That said, don't forget to log in and share your comments, announcements, photos and blogs.
Thank you again for making this one of the most rewarding jobs I have ever had.Since goodbyes are always hard—let's just say hasta luego or see you later.
Oh, and be sure and say "hello" if you see me out and about.
