Who We Are

The Jefferson Chronicle is the township’s only dedicated source for news and local information, with coverage spanning all sections of this great community. Our staff is here to serve you in providing 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 and can be picked up at no charge from various businesses.

Kevin L. Pattky, Jr. founded The Jefferson Chronicle in 2016 and serves as president and editor-in-chief. Local writers, columnists, editors, and designers guide the Chronicle toward its mission of being “from the community, for the community.”
