This is a hoot! From an article in The Union back in 2004. George’s p.r. experience is cited more than his journalism experience:
“George Boardman, a veteran journalist and public-relations professional, has been named business reporter for The Union.
“In 2001 and 2002, Boardman served as assistant city editor for The Union. He previously served as a copy editor for the Independent Newspaper Group in the San Francisco Peninsula.
“His extensive resume also includes stints as business editor and city editor for the San Mateo Times in the early 1970s. He worked in public relations for a variety of businesses in the 1980s and worked as a public-relations writer and consultant through much of the 1990s.
“In recent months, he has contributed several free-lance articles for The Union.
“A San Francisco native, Boardman is married to Mimi Boardman, a co-owner of the Stonehouse Restaurant in Nevada City.”
