East Cobbers, like people all over the world, are hoping that the bells ringing in 2022 will herald the start of a better era after two years of the global COVID pandemic that has decimated economies, tested health systems to their limits, disrupted our schools and work schedules as well as our own mental health. So long 2021! Can’t say I am sorry to see you go! 

By the time you are reading this, 2022 is here, and with it will come a  whole new year of reasons to have hope for a better year and East  Cobb pride. Who knows what new restaurant might open, what new  subdivisions we might see, and who is going to run for local political  offices? We know one thing for sure — we want to write about what  matters to you, our readers, the most. 

That’s why we’re asking the East Cobb crowd for questions you want  answered in 2022 — any piece of East Cobb life you’ve always wanted  to read. Want to know where to get the best breakfast bagel? The  oldest businesses in East Cobb? A local East Cobb legend? What kind of  restaurants does East Cobb need? Dream big, and tell us what’s in your  heart of hearts, because the questions you ask are gonna make the  EAST COBBER all the more interesting. 

Submit your questions to me, cynthia@eastcobber.com, to influence the  stories you’ll read in 2022 — it’s our New Year’s resolution to answer 22  of these. Stay tuned in 2022 as we bring you the answers you want most.  Together we’ll be continuing our mission to engage, communicate, and  connect readers to our great East Cobb community. 

Cheers to a new year!
