ORH needs a spokesperson
GoLocalWorcester column Two months from now, JetBlue will start daily service to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale. Maybe the marketing will start to really kick in then, but to date I have not seen as much as I would have had hoped. JetBlue will do what they need to do to market ORH.
