Hello Edgewater-Davidsonville

A friendly greeting from the new editor of Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch.

At a young age, I was told to "never stop learning.”

It was never an intention of mine, but that life lesson stuck with me. After college, I still longed for classes. Not the papers or the tests, but just the simple act of learning. Whether American history, politics, European soccer or the ukulele, I can’t get enough when it comes to learning new things.

And it’s this love for learning that I know will help me in this next chapter of life as the new editor of Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch.

I’ve been a Patch editor since the fall of 2010 and I had heard amazing things about south county—the community, the character, the pride and charisma of lifelong residents. When the chance arose to move to the area, I knew I had to take it.

It’s probably no secret that I’m the "new Patch guy” in town, especially if you’ve been around the , but I wanted to formally introduce myself and say how incredibly excited and humbled I am about being your one-stop-shop for local news.

I’m learning more each day about the issues that matter to you, and as I grow as a south county resident myself, my desire is to become more connected to the pulse of the community. 

Being an online reporter requires hustle and adaptability, two things I know I can bring to Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch. I strive for fast, accurate reporting while engaging you on the issues that matter most, and that’s what I plan to do.

Some of the highlights of my Patch career so far have included meeting a , getting a behind-the-scenes look at , and covering perhaps I’ve ever seen.

I’ve helped a community replace , spoken with a Marine , and seen a soldier from Iraq.

As I seek to make Patch an even larger part of the community, I know there will be lots of opportunities to learn along the way. I’m totally new to this area of Anne Arundel County and I look forward to coffee shop gatherings and quick conversations. Ideally, you do all the talking and I’ll just listen.

So, that’s the attitude I bring to this new and exciting opportunity—humility and hustle.

My job is to provide you the most relevant news when it comes to the area but I know I have much to learn from you, the community, along the way. In truth, I believe that together we can continue to make Patch a central part of the Edgewater-Davidsonville community.

Let’s do this.

Welcome, Jonathan! Being new to "South County" I hope you are aware that South County runs from the South River bridge to the Calvert County line, encompassing Edgewater and Davidsonville, but not exclusive to it. I hope to see continued coverage for all of South County activities, events, and news. Love the Patch.com!

Cindy, et al, I live in the "no-man's-land of Edgewater" between Rte 665 and the South River. People think we are in Annapolis, but our Post Office is Edgewater. I use banks, markets, etc. in Edgewater. So can't we here consider ourselves, an anomoly, South County even though we are north of the bridge?

Thanks Cindy! My goal is to cover as much of the area as possible.
