Last Call: McAlvanah Takes a Well Deserved Break from NJ and DC

In an email to friends today, Nora McAlvanah, NJ‘s editor of “Wake-Up Call” and “Last Call,” announced that she’s taking a well-deserved break from Washington after four-plus years with Hotline. “I’ve decided it’s time to spend more time with my family. Or at least for the next month, I’ll be doing a little of that– along with traveling, eating, and working on operating heavy machinery.”

McAlvanah will be back in DC in December, freelancing, and thanks friends for “bizarre tips, exacting political knowledge and comedic ra-ta-tat fodder.”

Her email is after the jump…

Friends,

After four-plus years at the Hotline, I’ve decided it’s time to spend more time with my family. Or at least for the next month, I’ll be doing a little of that– along with traveling, eating, and working on operating heavy machinery.

Thanks, in part, to many of you, I’ve set up enough freelance gigs to keep up a lavish-yet-leisurely lifestyle till December, when I’ll be back working in DC (more on that in another email). For now, I just wanted to thank you all for making this job– my first job out of college– exceedingly fun and incredibly fulfilling.

I’ve been so lucky to be on the receiving end of your bizarre tips, exacting political knowledge and comedic ra-ta-tat fodder. And I’ve been even luckier that so many of you–most of you, at one point, just random names on emails attached to one campaign or another– have become lasting and genuine friends.

So, you’re my takeaway: my book deal, my todd palin, my 2010 bid that’s already tanked.

Thanks for everything,

–Nora
