Coming soon: Lyle Harris joining SaportaReport

Dear Readers,

For the next 10 days or so, I will be out of pocket. That means there will not be daily updates on SaportaReport.

But while I’m gone, you will be in for a special treat.

Lyle Harris, my former colleague at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, has agreed to write the next column in the Maria’s Metro spot.

Many of you know Lyle. You have read his editorials in the AJC focusing primarily on transportation, housing, land-use and the environment.

Better yet, Lyle has agreed to join me as a partner on SaportaReport. In the coming weeks, you will see a regular column from Lyle. And that’s just the beginning. Lyle and I hope to partner in more ways to help make the Atlanta region and Georgia a more vibrant place for all.

Maria Saporta
