Local Reporter and Publicist

Getting back to my roots in journalism, I recently joined Scarsdale's leading news source, scarsdale10583.com, as a government and education reporter. Within the past year, I've reached thousands of local residents via impartial and thorough coverage of current events.


I also have coordinated publicity efforts for a number of local organizations as they communicate their programs and raise their profile in the community. Projects have included media placement as well as creating editorial/advertorial content.

"As Laura Halligan points out in her well-written article..." 

"I just wanted to thank Laura Halligan for the very professional and well executed review of my lecture." 

"Ms. Halligan's excellent account of the public hearing..."
"Ms. Halligan, as always I appreciate your efforts at very balanced reporting."
