Faszczewski, a long-time reporter and editor for many community newspapers in Union and Essex Counties, also spent more than a decade as an editor of legal research publications for Lexis-Nexis, one of the globe’s leading legal publishers.

He has been a reporter for TAPinto almost since its inception. Although principally covering municipal government in Summit, he also writes on government and other issues for sites in Berkeley Heights, New Providence, West Essex and Springfield, and is helping to spearhead the enhanced coverage of the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders.

Additionally, he has a freelance copyediting, proofreading and public relations writing business through which he has prepared press materials for some of the top public relations firms in New Jersey and is helping budding authors polish their writing to make their works ready for publication.

Faszczewski recently worked with an author on a major self-published rewrite of Robert’s Rules of Order, which almost every organization uses to guide it in parliamentary procedure.

The reporter and editor resides in Springfield with his wife Joan and their Labrador retriever Bella.
