As my time at GoLocalWorcester comes to a close, I’m feeling a little nostalgic about all the events and things I covered — from the intense, most expensive US Senate race in our nation’s history, to watching the area’s fiercest cyclists tackle the steepest hill in the city at the George Street annual competition — covering news and happenings in Central Mass. was a whirlwind.
I wanted to share some of these moments I had, some of which didn’t always get included in the stories I wrote. There’s only so much room for visuals.
For the first installment, I went through my photos from the US Senate race between Scott Brown (R) and Elizabeth Warren (D). The race was an ongoing spectacle filled with nasty accusations, gaffs, and tremendous funding. I followed them to office openings, meet-and-greets at local diners, speeches, and public venues and garnered some national attention for some of the pieces I wrote. It was a really fun experience, and at the end of it, I felt I had learned a great deal about political reporting and campaigns, and gained a lot of self-confidence.
I’ll be bringing you some more slideshows in the next few days, chronicling other news events in the area and some of the lighters things I’ve covered during my time in Central MA.
