Weekly Column: Mayor Cahn Launches the Citizen's Cabinet

As a candidate, I spoke regularly about the need to further engage our community in the process of governing our Township. No matter where I traveled, be it community gatherings, Chats with Chuck, meetings with local business owners, or speaking with people around town, I heard and understood the repeated desire to have additional opportunities to be involved in Cherry Hill.

As I listened, it was apparent that residents are committed and passionate about making positive progress in Cherry Hill Township. The desire to create a larger sense of community was a repeated topic that arose and it is my hope that we will be able to work closely with residents throughout the township to do just that. I solicited ideas on how we could take the concerns that were raised and best develop solutions to resolve them.

Taking the Mayoral Oath of Office, I made clear my belief that our future depends on teamwork, as government is not someone else’s problem, but one that we must own. I recognize that it is imperative to work with each other, not talk at each other. Additionally, I understand the need to be tough but fair, and change things that don’t work. In order to make sure change happens, we need to seek areas of consensus and find common ground, where we can work together to be effective, efficient and compassionate, at the same time.

To encourage additional communication, provide additional opportunities for residents to be involved and expand coordination between the Mayor’s Office and members of our community; I have committed to establishing the Citizen’s Cabinet. The Citizen’s Cabinet will gather for regular meetings and serve as a vehicle for providing the Township Administration guidance and feedback regarding activities, events, and initiatives.

It is the objective of the Citizen’s Cabinet to engage residents and leaders throughout the community, to create an incubator of ideas and provide much needed two-way communication between the Office of the Mayor and the greater community. This forum will provide an opportunity for meaningful discussion, incorporating the collective knowledge of our neighbors to work with the administration as we identify, develop and implement plans to move Cherry Hill forward.

The Citizen’s Cabinet will be a voluntary board, made up of a diverse cross section of neighborhood leaders, Civic Association leaders, community activists, and concerned residents. The goal of the Citizens Cabinet will be to work collaboratively with the Mayor, Department Heads and members of the administration to develop solutions to alleviate those concerns and tackle the challenges we face around the Township. I believe that by implementing this resident committee, we will improve communication allowing for swift action by residents and administration alike.

The Citizen’s Cabinet is an additional forum for residents to voice opinions, concerns, and suggestions. This is the chance to have your voice heard as we determine the future of our community.

If you are interested in being a member of the Citizen’s Cabinet, please submit your resume or brief bio, along with a letter identifying what role you believe you can play to The deadline for submitting your information to be considered for the Citizens Cabinet is March 2.

I am excited to implement the Citizen’s Cabinet and engage residents on a whole new level, and look forward to the positive change that it will bring about.
