Jan Moore, the business editor of the Statesboro Herald in Georgia, says she will no longer write articles for the paper now that she has announced that she is running for mayor.
Moore writes, “I am extremely excited about campaigning for the office and sharing my vision for this wonderful city going forward. However, with that commitment, I knew that I would not be able to continue writing the weekly feature business article in Tuesday’s business section.
“The article about Farmers & Merchants Bank will be my last for the duration of the election cycle and maybe permanently depending on the results. I will continue to write my weekly column.
“I have been writing these articles week in and week out for almost 10 years, and it has been a tremendous source of pleasure for me. As a wife and a mother, I know the excitement, pride, and joy that I feel when I talk about my children and my husband.
“I have seen that same joy and excitement in the faces of business owners and professionals that I have interviewed over the years as they talk about their companies, their organizations, and their staff as if they were family. It rejuvenates me every week knowing the quality and caliber of business owners that make up our community.”
