Roll Call Editor-in-Chief Christina Bellantoni announced today that Assistant Managing Editor Sara Bondioli is leaving to become Deputy Politics Editor at the Huffington Post.

“Sara first came to Roll Call nearly five years ago, in mid-March 2009.” Bellantoni wrote in an email to staff. “She worked as a copy editor, deputy copy chief and then copy chief, all the while helping us grow, and working with us to make our writing sharper, our papers better and our days brighter. She has caught countless errors, posted countless stories and added countless calories to our diets.” (Apparently Sara was very generous with her beer and baked goods. Sounds like the perfect co-worker to us!)

Sara’s last day at Roll Call will be March 14, and she starts at HuffPo on March 24. Congratulations Sara!
