About Us

The Jefferson Chronicle was “born” in November 2016, the brainchild of township resident Kevin L. Pattky, Jr.

Kevin was not willing to let Jefferson Township go without a news outlet when the AIM Jefferson ceased publication. The young and energetic entrepreneur immediately jumped into action, planning and executing The Jefferson Chronicle in just two short months.

Kevin, former Founder and Chief Executive Officer of iPOP Innovations, a digital media company and current Founder, President and Editor-In-Chief of The Jefferson Chronicle, tapped into experienced local journalist and former Jefferson Patch editor Sue Toth to assist in developing the editorial strategy and operation, and veteran sports journalist Michael Chirichella to head up sports coverage. He formed a talented advisory board to help with reaching out to the community.
