Sandra Storey has been an active resident of Jamaica Plain since 1973. In 1985, she was elected chairperson of the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council. Storey founded Gazette Publications Inc. in 1990 which published the Jamaica Plain Gazette (1990-current), Mission Hill Gazette (1990-current), and Hyde Park Today (1994-1997).

The newspapers ran articles that highlight youth programs and sports, senior services, transportation and housing issues, and the achievements of local residents. Community involvement by politicians including former Mayors Raymond Flynn and Thomas Menino, former Governor Deval Patrick, and President Barack Obama was also featured.
