Publisher Message –April 2022
With this issue I’m thrilled to share that The Park Press is celebrating our 15th anniversary! As I stop to reflect, I find myself feeling blessed and honored by the role we play within our community. We have remained steadfast to focusing on “the positive news that matters” and we greatly appreciate your loyal readership and following.
Sure, I started this venture, but it has always been a team/family effort.
First, I cannot express how grateful we are to our advertisers! It all started with a cold call to John Psomas at State Farm in Baldwin Park. He was my first call to sell an ad in the April 2007 issue of The Park Press. He signed on and has been in every issue since! Several others such as Orlando Health, and David Holbrook with Waterstone Mortgage have been running for over fourteen years. All of the advertisers within each issue are key members of The Park Press family, and I’m honored that we are an important part of their marketing strategy and a valued member of their team. I encourage you to consider doing business with them and refer our advertisers’ products and services to your neighbors, family, and friends whenever possible.
Second, I believe our team rivals some of the most talented individuals you would find in any publication. From our elected officials to featured writers, proofers, art director, and sales. I’m referring to: Janna McGowan, Jill Shargaa, Commissioner Robert Stuart, Mayor Phil Anderson, George McGowan, Stephen Pategas, Kristin Pategas, MPO Jim Whitman, Ayesha G. Shenk, M.A, and Lisa Ireton. I feel humbled by their passion and dedication to share “the positive news that matters” within our community through The Park Press.
As always, thank you for reading The Park Press, and we look forward to the great things to come!
