David Ertischek Joins Jamaica Plain News

Hi neighbors, this is Chris Helms, publisher of Jamaica Plain News. I have some exciting news to share about this site. My longtime colleague and friend David Ertischek, a well-known Boston journalist who has lived in JP for nearly 15 years, will be running Jamaica Plain News day-to-day. I'll still be involved with Jamaica Plain News, which I founded in April 2014. But I have a 9-to-5 job now in addition to Jamaica Plain News, so I'm bringing in help.
