DescriptionPatersonPress.com a hyperlocal news site for Paterson N.J. brings an old-school mentality to a new era of journalism. Editor Joe Malinconico said that traditional shoe leather reporting is what makes Paterson Press shine. That’s also what won the site two New Jersey Society of Professional Journalists awards only eight months after it launched. Paterson Press launched in October 2010 as a project of the Citizens Campaign a nonprofit organization that educates citizens on how to be active in local government. The group believes that citizens who have more information about local government and politics will become more engaged in the political process.
