Blog: We'll Miss Ajay Singh

Eagle Rock Patch editor Ajay Singh is leaving the community with a big void.

Just found out that Eagle Rock Patch editor Ajay Singh is being reassigned, which I see as a big mistake.

I wonder if the powers that be at Patch realize what an asset Ajay has been to their organization. He was the face of his news site and is a trusted and reliable source of news for the local community he served.

We all relied on him for our local scoops. He was always present at various events and was well liked and had become a vital part of the community that everyone knew.

As a semi-retired photo journalist who covered the Northeast area for over a half century, I saw Ajay as well versed and knowledgeable in his coverage of local events and activities.

Although sometimes controversial, he kept residents apprised of what was happening in their backyard. I could go on complimenting his work but his record speaks for itself. Best of luck Ajay, stay in touch with us!

This is a blow to the community. The only way this is acceptable is if Ajay is being promoted, otherwise we need to get a write in process going to the powers that be to keep this excellent journalist and prince of a man here in our community where he has built a loyal following through excellent writing and reporting.

I appreciate everyone's kind words, but to paraphrase Mark Twain, news of my departure is greatly exaggerated. I'm currently working on a special assignment for Patch that is taking me away from my usual daily duties in Eagle Rock. As you can see, my picture and email are still at the top of the site. I'm still the editor of Eagle Rock Patch. Continue to contact me with whatever news, tips or questions you have. David Fonseca, the editor for Highland Park-Mount Washington Patch, is assisting me during this period. You may see him around town or at meetings. Please give him a warm Eagle Rock welcome.

Ajay was gone? Will he come back? What is his current top-secret assignment? Will Mr. Fonseca really replace him, and considerably raise the editorial standards of Eagle Rock Patch? Why was this blog censored by removing it from the front page?Who is assisting whom? Eagle Rock Enquirer readers want to know.

Good to hear. I was afraid that Arianna had taken you away and you would be rowing her yacht around the Med.
