Patch launches a ‘membership model’ in Newton

In Newton’s news desert, Patch has become an incomplete, yet valuable, local news and events resource, particularly under the watch of Jenna Fisher who covers multiple municipalities for the online site.

Dear Newton neighbors,

My name is Jenna Fisher, and I have been the editor and reporter of the Newton Patch for about two years now. I grew up in Northern Virginia and happily moved to the area about a decade ago. You may recognize my name from my three years at the TAB – or if you’re a fan of The Office, well, you know me
