Sabrina Wu brings a background in television, radio and print to her role as editor for the Burr Ridge Patch site. Before joining Patch, she worked as an anchor, reporter and producer at WSAW-TV in Wausau, WI; a producer at WBAY-TV in Green Bay, WI; the Washington DC correspondent for KSNT-TV in Topeka, KS and has appeared on NBC's Dateline. She is a graduate of Northwestern University 's Medill School of Journalism and sits on the board of the Asian American Journalists Association in Chicago as treasurer. Her work has been published in several Chicago-area newspapers and magazines, including Crain's Chicago Business, Chicago Athlete magazine, The Daily Herald, The Daily Southtown and The Northwest Indiana Times. Your Beliefs At Patch, we promise always to report the facts as objectively as possible and otherwise adhere to the principles of good journalism. However, we also acknowledge that true impartiality is impossible because human beings have beliefs. So in the spirit of simple honesty, our policy is to encourage our editors to reveal their beliefs to the extent they feel comfortable. This disclosure is not a license for you to inject your beliefs into stories or to dictate coverage according to them. In fact, the intent is the opposite: we hope that the knowledge that your beliefs are on the record will cause you to be ever mindful to write, report and edit in a fair, balanced way. And if you ever see evidence that we failed in this mission, please let us know. Politics I am not a member of any political party. I evaluate political candidates the way I evaluate everyone else—as individuals. I believe issues are more important than political parties, and partisanship should take a back seat to public interest. Religion I'm a Christian. In very basic terms, this means that I live my life as though I'm accountable to someone—someone who knows everything I do, and every thought, intention and feeling that I have. Compassion and honesty are two qualities I try to live by, and value in others. In my life and in my career, I hope to make a positive difference in people's lives. Local Hot-Button Issues Parents always are interested to know what the latest developments are out of the D86 and D181 school boards. We'll want to know what parents think and how the policies are affecting their children.
