Streetsblog’s Fond Farewell to Veronica Hernandez

Over the years, we’ve had a handful of interns here at Streetsblog. For years, Carter Rubin has been in a class of his own for his contributions to our efforts but today we say goodbye to a young woman who’s contributions match Rubin’s.

In her three months with Streetsblog, Hernandez pioneered our new Tumblr, Streetsblog Lite, updated LITE nearly every day, joined me in our far-reaching interview with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and worked on her own story on the Downtwon L.A. bike network. That story will be published later today.

We know she’s going to do great things, and look forward to staying in touch during her senior year at Smith College and beyond.

From all of us at Streetsblog, thanks for everything…and stay in touch.

– Damien for the entire Streetsblog Team.
