Gail Thompson transformed the New Haven Advocate "from a scruffy low-budget weekly into a community powerhouse," Carole and Paul Bass write in a story announcing her departure after 11 years as publisher. "Under her stewardship, the paper nearly tripled its sales, broadened its readership, broke major investigative stories and helped spawn such community events as City-Wide Open Studios and Film Fest New Haven," they write.
