Cherry Hill to save $2 million from debt refinancing
My office received great news this week: the Township will save almost $2 million through Fiscal Year 2024, thanks to a successful debt-refinancing completed on Thursday. Near-record-low interest rates made refinancing extremely attractive for the Township – and the savings that we will now realize is far greater than anyone imagined. Cherry Hill’s positive name recognition and a strong Aa2 credit rating from Moody’s Investors Service helped us secure a significantly lower rate than we had been paying, and now, our taxpayers will benefit. This was a wonderfully successful attempt to reduce costs without sacrificing service, and I am extremely proud to share the news. For more information, please call my office at (856) 488-7878, or email me at

Mayor, Council help break ground on new senior housing complexBenedicts for Briefing.jpg
On Wednesday, Council members David Fleisher and John Amato and I helped break ground on the new Benedict’s Place senior housing facility on the campus of St. Mary’s Catholic Home. We were joined by Bishop Joseph Galante, representatives from the Camden Diocese, Freeholder Director Lou Cappelli, Congressman Rob Andrews and many others for the special event. When completed in 2013, the facility will provide 74 new affordable housing units for senior citizens in our region. Funding for the project has been provided by the N.J. Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency, the Diocesan Housing Services Corporation, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Camden County. Congratulations to everyone involved; this is a wonderful project for our senior residents, and I look forward to seeing it completed.

Mayor's Wellness: How much strain does running place on the knees?mwclogo2.jpg
Is running bad for the knees? The truth is that one's knees can withstand running better than they can withstand carrying around extra weight. In fact, when Stanford University doctors studied a group of runners for over 20 years, they found that their joints actually got healthier. One-third of the non-running group developed bad knees, primarly from carrying weight around their mid-sections. Being concerned about your knees should not be a reason to skip the treadmill! With that said, running may not be your best option. It's always best to check with your physician before you begin a new exercise regimen.
