About Savannah Blackwell

savannah_300.jpg Savannah Blackwel spent 14 years covering government and politics for various newspapers —

1996 where she covered City Hall and devoted herself to exposing the wheeling and dealing of former mayor
Willie Brown. She also represented the Bay Guardian weekly on the SF Newshour cable television show. After
Mayor Gavin Newsom was inaugurated in Jan. 2004, she became the editor of the SFProgressive.com and in late 2005 went to work for the Daily Journal, which covers legal affairs.
