Statehouse coverage receives boost; gardening column to make debut; T&G Santa Fund returns

Greetings, Telegram & Gazette readers. I hope your fall is off to a good and healthy start.

It’s been a couple of months now since I started as executive editor of the newspaper, and I wanted to write to introduce what I think are a couple nice enhancements to our coverage. 

Statehouse coverage

For the first time in years, the Telegram now has a reporter covering the Statehouse. 

She’s Kinga Borondy, and she joins the T&G staff after spending the past several months covering Beacon Hill for Gannett’s WickedLocal network of publications. A New Jersey native, she spent 20 years covering the Garden State for different outlets. A dozen of those years were in Newark as the crime and emergency services reporter for the Star-Ledger; more recently she was a columnist for The Press of Atlantic City covering fishing, golf and food; and worked as a freelancer.

The Massachusetts Statehouse, Boston

This week, you may have seen her story on the future of the state Republican Party

Over the next few weeks, Kinga will provide coverage of key statewide races in the November election. Going forward, she’ll be bringing a Worcester County focus to coverage of Beacon Hill. 

“I am insatiably curious, love talking with people, finding and following information and telling everybody about it,” Kinga says. “I hope to cover the Statehouse in a way that brings legislation to life and makes it meaningful for everyday life.”

You can reach her at

Gardening Central Mass.

Additionally, starting this weekend, a new gardening column will be making its debut at and in the ACT section of the Sunday newspaper.
