The Denver VOICE is thrilled to welcome Sarah Ford to the team as our new Managing Editor! There are many strong attributes that she will contribute to this new role, from her extensive journalism and editorial experience to her heartfelt dedication to our mission.
When I open the trunk of my car, years of my history with the Denver VOICE stare back at me. I started collecting issues of the VOICE when I first found the paper in the summer of 2012, and by now I have amassed dozens of issues. In their yellowed pages I remember my own story—the years I spent as a volunteer writer, as an intern, as a contributor and copy editor.
To those who frequent downtown and East Colfax, the site of mobile public toilets is no longer an unexpected relief. But it was only a year ago that downtown visitors needing a restroom would find themselves with few to no options.
This is the most difficult letter I’ve ever written as editor of the Denver VOICE because it is my last. The VOICE has been a part of my life for almost a decade. Now, after many years as a writer and volunteer, and three fantastic years as editor, it’s time for me to move on to a new chapter.
