Christina, I see you live way down in Hazlet (Monmouth County). What happened to Nicole Bitette, the Patch editor for Cranford? I see her contact and bio information has been unceremoniously pulled from the Patch Web site. Was she recently fired, like the local editor for Clark-Garwood-Scotch Plains? Both were earnest, talented people. Is there anyone left in Union County covering Cranford?

Hi Dan -- Our commitment to serving our communities is still at the forefront. If there are issues in Cranford you believe merit more attention, please don't hesitate to reach out to Christina (christina.johnson@patch.com) or me (jacklyn.corley@patch) or post them on our Boards at the right.

Jacklyn, thanks for your prompt response. However, as a journalist, you know you didn't answer any of my questions. (And I see your bio only mentions Monmouth County, too.)

I doubt you'll get a straight answer, Dan. After a company is bought, the employees are on tenterhooks. Despite its local, personal intent, obviously Patch is not immune to the cutthroat tactics of every other internet business out there. One day, management tells you how e-valued you are, the next day you are out of an e-job.

Thanks, Monk. Your e-comment, of course, is quite right. And the lack of a straight answer to my inquiry seeking the name of someone located in Union County covering Cranford confirms my inference. There is now no one. It appears that Patch HQ is now Monmouth County.
