Cherry Hill Welcomes New Councilwoman

On Friday, January 5, I had the honor of welcoming our newest Councilwoman, Sangeeta Doshi at our 2018 Reorganization Meeting.  


Councilwoman Doshi has lived in Cherry Hill for over 21 years. She is a member of the Domestic Violence Response Team, has been a member of the Cherry Hill Planning Board, Cherry Hill Zoning Board of Adjustment, and volunteered with Cherry Hill Atlantic Little League.

Sangeeta is an active member of the Indian cultural center and temple association and is the first In
dian-American elected to office in South Jersey. She has worked as a professional in the telecommunications sector and is a former small business owner. One of Sangeeta's main objectives during her time on council will be uniting residents of all religious and racial backgrounds. 

I along with Township Council couldn't be more excited for her to serve our Cherry Hill community. We are honored and excited to have Sangeeta Doshi as part of our team.

Mayor Cahn and Council Attend Jefferson Surgery Center Ribbon Cutting

On Wednesday, January 10, I along with some of the members of our Township Council attended the Jefferson Surgery Center Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. 

Jefferson Surgery Center – Cherry Hill brings specialty care including orthopedics, gastroenterology, and pain management into Cherry Hill, along with many opportunities for employment which is so important to our residents and surrounding areas. 

Cherry Hill is committed to welcoming and supporting local health facilities to our area that aim to assist our residents in maintaining a healthy living. 
I wish Jefferson Surgery Center the best of luck here in Cherry Hill and welcome to the community!
