Take My Job! (For a Little While)

Starting in January (precise date to-be-determined), I'm going to take some time off to have my first baby. I'll be taking a break from my duties at Streetsblog Capitol Hill for a couple of months, and then I'll be back part-time for a few more months, getting to know the little one. (So far, all I know about her is she's quite the little kickboxer.)

All told, it should be about five months before I return to a full-time schedule. That means someone else will be leading Capitol Hill coverage while I'm on leave.

We're currently searching for an interim reporter who can step in and cover the federal transportation policy beat with aplomb. And since nobody knows better than our readers what makes for a good Streetsblog reporter, we're recruiting you to help get the word out about this assignment. We're looking for a skilled journalist and engaging writer with a strong understanding of both the legislative process and transportation policy issues.

If you know the right person for the job, or if you want to apply, here's the full description.

Thanks for reading, and for getting the word out about this opportunity.
