Some notable community figures, past and present, recently shared their thoughts on the Mission Hill Gazette marking 20 years of community service.
City Councilor and Mission Hill resident Mike Ross: “Local press is the cornerstone of our community. People have relied on the Mission Hill Gazette to not only provide them with new stories for the last 20 years, but to be the very face of their neighborhood.”
Mike’s Donuts co-owner Maria Weinograd: The Gazette is about “knowledge, information and fun.” The community has “lots of love and respect” for the paper.
State Rep. Jeffrey Sánchez: There have been many neighborhood changes, and “the Gazette has been part of those community transitions. It’s been the communicator of some of the greatest ideas in community development.”
Former City Councilor Tom Keane: “In the aftermath of the Charles Stuart shooting, the Mission Hill Gazette gave a neighborhood a voice and vision, helping a remarkable community achieve even greater heights.”
