In addition to her planning, reporting and editing responsibilities, Taylor will lead a team tasked with explaining the processes and procedures in Washington, connecting the dots between local politics in Orange County, state politics in Sacramento and national politics in Washington.
The initial Beltway bureau plan calls for three graduate-level editorial assistants and a team of freelance reporters. The paper’s prior D.C. bureau closed in 2010.
