Hi, I'm Chris Mazzolini, the new editor of Cleveland Heights Patch.
While I'm new to the Heights area, I'm not new to Patch or the Cleveland area. I was born and raised in Northeast Ohio and have spent the past two-plus years as editor of Solon Patch and, for a short time, Twinsburg Patch.
I'm looking forward to getting to know the residents of Cleveland Heights and providing you with the timely and local news and information you need.
How you can reach me: I love reader feedback, be it praise or criticism, and I'll be looking for your story ideas. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 440-289-4381.
A bit about me (You can read my full bio here):
- I grew up in Wickliffe. I studied political science at Kenyon College and then received my Masters Degree at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.
- Before coming to Patch in December 2010, I worked as a newspaper reporter in North Carolina for six years. There I covered a whole range of topics, including military issues, local government, state government, environmental issues and more.
- I'm an identical twin. I live with my lovely wife Karyn and have four pets: Two dogs, two cats.
I thought this would be a good time for a refresher on all that Patch offers:
