Patch Launches West End Alexandria Site
The third Patch site covering the city of Alexandria launched Thursday afternoon.
In response to requests from residents and businesses, Patch lauched a community site for the West End of Alexandria Thursday afternoon.
Patch, a community-specific news, information and engagement platform, launched in Virginia in 2010 and now has 31 websites across Northern Virginia—from Leesburg to Arlington and as far south as Fredericksburg. There are more than 900 sites in the Patch network across the country.
Rachel Leonard, formerly the editor of Fort Hunt and Huntington-Belle Haven Patch, is now editor of West Alexandria Patch. Longtime Patch Editor Jessie Biele will be at the helm of those sites.
