Leave? I live here.

It’s been a whirlwind week here at the home office in Towson.

In case you haven’t heard, I left the Towson Times and Patuxent Publishing Co. Friday. (Well, technically Thursday but what’s a few hours among friends?)

For nearly nine years the company has been my home. I was hired first as the politics and government reporter and three years later promoted to political editor.

That ended Thursday when I gave notice of my intention to leave and go to Patch.com and was subsequently let go a day later. It’s an odd feeling to be let go from a job where you work from home.

I’d be escorted out of any other office under the same circumstances. This time, everything was done by phone and e-mail and when it was over I simply hung up the phone and let my dog in.

Soon my old office will become my new office and my old beat, covering the goings on in Baltimore County government and politics, will be my beat again.

I’ll be writing and posting here for the next few days until I start at the new place.

I start the new gig on Oct. 25 where I’ll be Patch.com’s assistant regional editor for Maryland region one and the politics and government reporter in Baltimore County. Patch.com is a hyper-local news source that has sites around the country including 27 in Maryland. Four of those are in Baltimore county — Catonsville, Lutherville-Timonium, Perry Hall and Towson.
