Jessica Taylor is leaving National Journal for a gig as assistant web editor for a new site at Politico called “2010,” which will focus on the midterm elections.
See the memo from Jackie Koszczuk that announces Taylor’s departure after the jump.
I’m sad to report that Jessica Taylor will be leaving NJ to take a job as the assistant web editor for a new site at Politico called 2010, which will focus on the midterm elections. Jessica was an invaluable asset to the production of the 2010 Almanac and to the new website that launched in October. The job demanded that she be a book researcher, a profile writer, a campaign tracker, a web producer and an organizer of interns, and she tackled all of these roles with great skill and grace. She kept herself ahead of developments, and had a knack for completing tasks before I could get around to asking her to do them. If you can imagine Col. Blake without Radar O’Reilly, you can fathom the magnitude of my loss. Please join me in wishing her well in her new venture.
