The following excerpt was sent out from The Union:
Beginning Feb. 1, Chad Wingo took over as publisher for the local paper which was established in 1864. Wingo has worked for The Union in advertising sales for 10 years and is committed to serving the community of the area he calls home.
“I started with The Union in July of 2013,” Wingo said. “I was hired on in advertising and have managed accounts for the (paper) since then. The last six years I have been business development manager and the last year, director of business development and marketing. Then I was promoted to publisher officially on Wednesday, Feb. 1.”
Aside from his many hours spent in The Union’s offices, Wingo is co-owner of Grass Valley Brewing Company. His desire to travel down that path has everything to do with how much he loves his adopted hometown.
“I want people to know that I am committed and involved in this community,” Wingo said. “Neither my wife nor I are originally from here but we both consider this our hometown. Our children were born here. We both work for very involved organizations in this area, and we are co-owners of a business that we decided to put downtown so that it would have a beneficial impact to other businesses.”
