With this change in staffing, the Express is looking to hire a city reporter. The writer will cover community news related to the Winters City Council and Winters Planning Commission meetings. They will be responsible for attending the meetings in Winters on alternating Tuesdays at 6 p.m. Writers are responsible for their own transportation. Through the week the writer will be responsible for conducting follow-up interviews to add context to their reporting at the meetings. Writers must be able to work to a tight deadline in order to meet our weekly press day. The writer will be responsible for writing 2-3 clips on a weekly deadline. The nature of the beat requires the ability to adopt different writing styles. Some stories are brief and informative, others need to be more investigative and research-driven.  “I’m excited to meet the next award-winning Winters journalist,” says the Express’ Taylor Buley.

    1. Hey Ramon, thank you for the compliment! No one complained — at least no more than usual, to my knowledge. I was offered a great opportunity in Sacramento and felt I had to take it, but I’m sad to be leaving behind an amazing team and wonderful community that I’ve been privileged to report to over the last year. I’m confident the paper will continue on with the same mission and journalistic spirit.
