An Honor to be Editor of The Hudson Independent
To the Editor:
It is a strange feeling to be writing a letter to the editor of The Hudson Independent but I did not want to let the opportunity pass by to send my very best wishes to Rick Pezzullo as he takes the helm.
It was my honor and my privilege to have become the first editor of this newspaper more than three years ago. There were many changes as the newspaper evolved, but the mission remained constant: to produce every month the highest quality publication with the highest possible editorial standards. That was The Hudson Independent’s mission long before it had a name, when a group of community members gathered their financial and creative resources to build a newspaper from the ground up that has gone on to win awards from in- and outside the community, including the New York Press Association, and the Rotary Clubs of the Tarrytowns, which honored the newspaper as its 2008 Organization of the Year and the editorial board chairman, Bob Kimmel, as its Person of the Year.
