Who We Are

The Jefferson Chronicle, an LGBTQ-, veteran-, and woman-owned company, is the township’s only dedicated source for news and local information, with coverage spanning all sections of this great community. We provide high-quality local news, sports, lifestyle, and event reporting.

The online platform is updated regularly, often with breaking news about the township. The monthly DIGEST offers a full-color print publication with special features, photos, regular columns by local writers, an event calendar, and more. The magazine is supported by local advertising. It is mailed to all homes in the Oak Ridge, Lake Hopatcong, and Wharton zip codes free of charge each month. It can also be picked up at no charge from select local businesses.

Kevin L. Pattky, Jr. founded The Jefferson Chronicle in 2016 and serves as president and editor-in-chief. Christopher Bean serves as vice president and director of business development. Our executive editor is Sue Toth. Local writers, columnists, editors, and designers guide The Chronicle toward its mission of being “from the community, for the community.”
