Back in January 2011, Current in Fishers was launched to provide local-local news and entertainment content to the town. Finally, Fishers had its own newspaper. So far, so good, we’ve been told by a number of folks. It wouldn’t have transpired the way it did without the yeoman efforts of its managing editor, Jordan Fischer. Jordan, a former Current intern, began with us a couple months before launch date, familiarizing himself with how the town runs – and who runs it – and the people that make up the fabric of this great community. We believe he has done an outstanding job as the founding editor, but, because we have someone we believe will become his equal, we are moving Jordan to run our Carmel newspaper. If you know Jordan, and we’re sure many of you do by now, you recognize he is, if nothing else, an unflappable, can-do guy. So it didn’t surprise us in the least when he said, “sure” to our question of whether he could handle Current in Fishers AND Current in Carmel until his Current in Fishers successor arrives. His official transition date is May 14, when Dan Domsic, Butler-University educated as Jordan is, comes on board. You’ll like Dan, too, as he is as thoughtful and community-centric as Jordan. So for us, it’s a win-win. We believe this edition won’t miss a beat under Dan’s direction, and we thank Jordan tremendously for setting the tempo.

Your May 8 edition of Current in Fishers actually will be delivered this Saturday in an effort to offer you additional time to read up on the primary election, which is May 8. We hope you’ll visit your polling place. We view voting not only as a right, but also as a responsibility.
