Well, other than their employer (the AJC) they have both been named “Best State Capitol Reporters in America” by the GovBeat – a column/blog on state and local government in the Washington Post.
Too many people think politics = Washington DC + the President. More often than not, it’s local government that has the most direct and immediate impact on people’s lives. Thanks to all the reporters who cover the local beat on cities and counties and states. And congratulations to Torres and Galloway for the recognition of their work.
