A year already? So fast?
This year has been a year of much growth and reflection. What started as an idea for a progressive company like EMG is today a reality thanks to you, our readers, who have supported us during these first 365 days.
La Voz Newspaper was created to provide a reliable source of news for Lynn, Salem, Peabody and Revere. La Voz is the only centralized publication that focuses on providing news and highlighting the human talent of our community through the page “Heroes de Todos los Días- Everyday Heroes.”
It is gratifying to know that in just one year we’ve been able to penetrate multiple spheres of the cities we serve, and have positioned La Voz as an important means for the empowerment of our community as a whole. La Voz (The Voice) came as an almost imperceptible sigh, to become the spokesman of a community that today has its own voice.
As the editor of the newspaper, it is a pleasure to be able to work in and for my community, keep it informed and help it move forward. The motto “together we are more” has always resonated in my head and it’s a constant motivator get up and continue working for the respect of our diversity, the inclusion of our people and the equity of our community. Thank you again for allowing me to be part of your lives and please continue to support us. Remember that our voice is your voice.
