Congratulations to Associate Editor Matt Pacenza, who was honored last week for a series he wrote last fall examining the city’s $1 billion initiative to collecting default property tax debt. The National Association for Real Estate Editors not only awarded Matt the prize of “Best Magazine Report” and “Best Young Journalist” but also gave him their “Overall Individual Winner” award, for which he beat out competition from national publications like the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and NBC Dateline. His tax lien sales stories, “The Lien Machine,” November 2001 and “This Sold House,” are on our website.

Also honored recently was Managing Editor Tracie McMillan, whose story dissecting the city’s job training program for welfare recipients, “The Great Training Robbery,” May 2001, was selected as a finalist by the Harry Chapin Media Awards, which honors work about poverty and hunger.
