Starting today, Simsbury Patch has a new editor. My name is Jeff Brush and I was born and raised right here in town. I began my career with Patch when I launched The Granbys Patch, covering Granby and East Granby. After a short stint helping to launch a new region of Patch sites in South Carolina as editor for Easley Patch, I am happy to be back in my hometown where I will be covering daily news, events and the lives of the people here in our community. If there's something you'd like to see featured on Simsbury Patch, send me an email at email@example.com.
