We have a few exciting announcements to make regarding our editorial team at the San Clemente Times and Picket Fence Media.

First, it’s my pleasure to introduce our SC Times readers to Shawn Raymundo, the new City Editor for the SC Times. Many of you will recognize his name, as he’s been our City Editor for The Capistrano Dispatch for about the past year and has been a regular contributor to the SC Times. Shawn is taking over the San Clemente beat following the departure of Cari Hachmann, who has taken a communications job with an Orange County nonprofit group. We wish her all the best and thank her for her efforts.

Secondly, I’m proud to announce that we’ve promoted Lillian Boyd to the position of Picket Fence Media Senior Editor. Lillian is also the City Editor for the Dana Point Times, establishing herself as an award-winning reporter and powerful newsroom leader.

Shawn’s a terrific reporter and writer and was eager to step into the SC Times role once Cari announced her departure. He’ll benefit from having SC Times/Picket Fence Media Columnist Fred Swegles as a sounding board and partner as we navigate through some important issues such as homelessness, city elections, the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant’s ongoing decommissioning, and much more.

Please join me in welcoming Shawn to San Clemente. He can be reached at, and you can meet him in person at our weekly Coffee Chats held each Friday at 8 a.m. at the Dorothy Visser Senior Center.

Thanks for reading the SC Times.
