Globe West’s Deirdre Fernandes has moved to the Business section to cover banking and insurance. This is good news for Deirdre but sad news for Newton. Deirdre was the best reporter the Globe had dedicated to Newton in a long time and she covered a lot of ground while trying to keep government officials accountable.
Her successor is Evan Allen, according to Globe West Editor Leslie Anderson. Allen has been writing for the Globe as a freelancer for about two years, according to news clips I checked in the Globe archives, and she’s been in and out of Newton periodically. Her recent coverage on Engine 6 was certainly comprehensive. Evan can be reached at [email protected]
We welcome you to Newton, Evan, and hope you will join our discussions here at Village 14!
