Help Us Help You: What Should We Be Looking for in an L.A. Writer

As we approach the close of the application process for the L.A. and Sacramento writers for Streetsblog; I thought it would be a good time to ask all of you what you think we should be looking for in a regular, daily, writer for the Los Angeles position.

streetsblog-logo-sxswWe know what a Sacramento writer’s skill and experience set should look like: something similar to Tanya Snyder and Angie Schmitt’s (or Sarah Goodyear and Elana Schor for those of you kicking it old school), but what should we be looking for in a partner for Sahra and I?

Of course, we want someone with excellent writing skills, a curious mind, and experience moving in Los Angeles without a car. But if you were given the choice between us hiring a professional journalist with years of experience who happens to live a car-free (or car-lite) lifestyle and a long-time advocate who has sharp writing skills which would you choose?

Steve Hymon or Stephen Box?

Leave your thoughts in the comments section. I’m really interested to see what people have to say. The application period ends Monday for both the Los Angeles and Sacramento writing positions.

(Note: For the record, neither Steve Hymon nor Stephen Box have expressed any interest in the position.)
