Dear Readers and Advertisers.
When I purchased The Smithfield Times magazine in 2014, and our first edition came out in January of 2015 my editorial mission was to bring informative, interesting, and unusual local stories to the readers, and provide merchants with a platform to present their goods and services.
This mission was quickly fulfilled as evidenced by the loyalty of our readers and the advertisers who have had a measurable impact on our community.
As 2017 ends, it is the ideal time to express my appreciation for your continued loyalty and support.
The year ahead promises to have an even bigger impact on our town, and we will be there with all the information that you will need to make informed decisions when buying local.
On behalf of the entire staff at The Smithfield Times, I want to wish our readers, advertisers and partners, a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year. Working together, we can continue to be your source for quality, local information and advertising.
Here’s to 2018!
John J. Tassoni, Jr., Publisher
