Zak Failla

Zak worked as a sports editor at the Shoshone News Press in northern Idaho and as a sports writer at the Ithaca Journal before making his way to The Daily Voice. He is a Long Island native and proud alum of Ithaca College’s Roy H. Park School of Communication. When he’s not bemoaning the Atlanta Braves’ playoff woes, you can probably find him on the phone with his mom.

Andrew Meola

Andrew worked as a sports reporter for the Naples Daily News before joining Main Street Connect. He is a Brooklyn native and proud graduate of Syracuse University. He’s always happy to talk sports (and can spend a lot of time doing it, too). E-mail Andrew at ameola@thedailypelham.com.

Ashley Borger Dolan

Originally from Jacksonville, Florida, Ashley moved to New York City after graduating from the University of Georgia in 1998. She launched her career in fashion at TSE Cashmere, then moved to Ann Taylor, where she worked in product development and fabric R&D. In 2008, Ashley and her husband, Stephen, moved to Pelham with their then two-year old daughter and newborn son. Pelham was a natural choice for the Dolans as Stephen spent much of his childhood in town, is a graduate of Pelham Memorial High School, and has family who still call Pelham home. Since settling in Pelham (and buying, renovating, and moving into the house her husband grew up in), Ashley has had one more child and has become involved in a number of organizations and activities in town. She is currently a member of the executive committee of the PTA at Colonial Elementary School, has served on committees at both The Picture House and Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum, and is a former member of the Junior Board of Family Services of Westchester. Beyond her volunteer work, Ashley is a freelance wardrobe/style consultant who uses her fashion background to help assess her clients’ personal style needs — be it a closet cleanse, a wardrobe update or a simple re-style of existing pieces. As an active member of the Pelham community, Ashley is always on top of the next new exhibit, event, restaurant or store opening and is constantly scoping out the best Pelham and the surrounding area has to offer.
