I want to wish everyone at The Informer a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. May God continue to bless all of you and your families. The job you do is not an easy one, but we in the D.C. area want you to know that we appreciate all that you do. Here’s hoping that 2018 brings you nothing but success in providing us not with “fake news” but the “real deal” when it comes to news in our community.
I have had the pleasure and the honor of working with the staff of The Washington Informer for the past 10 years. When I started, I never could have imagined how working with such a wonderful group of people would have such a profound impact on me as a person. I have had the opportunity to witness firsthand how much work and dedication it takes to produce a high-quality, top-notch newspaper each and every week, and I am sure many in the Washington, D.C., area would agree with me. But, of all the things I have had the opportunity to witness while working for The Informer, the most impressive was the very unique, immensely creative, fiercely competitive and passionately devoted to the community in which she lives: the publisher, Denise Rolark Barnes. She is truly the hardest-working person I have had the pleasure of working with; she is really a remarkable woman. So, as I leave my position, I would like to say, “Thank you, Washington Informer, for 10 glorious years!”
