Andrew Nelson for The Journalist



This local news website is written by me, Andrew Nelson. I’ve lived in the Jefferson Park neighborhood of East Point since 2006.

The site started in 2009 when I built my first website on a Blogger platform before moving to WordPress. The vision was would be a website where folks of East Point could learn about what is happening on their street and around the corner.

    Dear Mr. Nelson,
    Thanks so much for keeping the community informed via this wonderful blog. The staff and students at Tri-Cities High School are especially pleased that you are helping get the word out about the good news at the school (e.g. TCHS stories on the BAND)

    I have informed the school of your blog in hopes that they will begin working proactively with you. In the meantime, I am contacting you as a parent volunteer and professional PR counselor. Please see my forthcoming email about Tri-Cities Partners in Education Signing Ceremony on 2/15 at 9:00 a.m. at the school.
