It's 2:22 a.m. on Wednesday morning, 21 hours after I started my workday, five hours since polls closed and about two years until they open up again.
I can think of no better time to say goodbye.
My tenure at the Watertown Daily Times is coming to an end on Friday. I'll still provide updates about the implications of last night's election, so my voice on this blog will not yet go silent. But sadly, for me, it soon will.
Thank you, loyal reader, for listening to my stories and forgiving my faults. I've learned a lot, and I have you to thank.
A special thanks, too, to the editors and sources who had to put up with me.
I won't be far. I'm going to write for nj.com, covering politics and business development in Middlesex County. If you'd like to get in touch, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
It has been an immense pleasure.
