New Chief chosen to lead the Cherry Hill Police Department in 2014Monaghan.jpg           
On Monday, I announced the promotion of Capt. William "Bud" Monaghan as Cherry Hill's new Chief of Police. Capt. Monaghan, an 18-year veteran of the Department, will assume his new position on Jan. 1, and succeeds current Chief Rick DelCampo, who will retire at the end of this year. Capt. Monaghan joined the Department in 1995, and for the last several years, has served as the head of the Administrative Division. His knowledge, experience, and respect among his peers in the Department made him the ideal candidate for the job, and Council and I look forward to working with Bud in the years to come. Click here to read the formal announcement, and please join me in congratulating Bud on his well deserved promotion.
              
Mayor, Council, officers honor retiring Chief DelCampoDelCampo.jpg
At Monday's Township Council meeting, dozens of Township Police Officers, firefighters, and community members joined Council and I to help honor retiring Police Chief Rick DelCampo. Chief DelCampo joined the Cherry Hill Police Department in 1978 as a police dispatcher, and rose through its ranks until he was promoted to Chief of Police in 2010. The Chief has had a tremendous impact on this Township and the CHPD, and will be deeply missed by all of us who have had the honor and pleasure of working with him through the years. Click here for more photos from Monday's ceremony, and please join me in wishing Chief DelCampo and his family health and happiness as he begins his next chapter in life.

Township prepared for potential winter storm on Saturday
Yet another winter storm is forecast to bring snow and freezing rain to our area during the day on Saturday, and Township officials are closely monitoring weather conditions. Public Works crews are on standby, and are prepared to treat and clear local roads as conditions require. Current forecasts call for as much as 2.5 to 5 inches of snow. Updated forecasts and additional weather-related information will be posted on the Township websiteFacebook and Twitter, as needed. The Township's Office of Emergency Management offers several tips to prepare yourself and your family for winter storms and other potential emergencies. Click here for more information. Remember: Please use your best judgment during this and any winter storm; avoid driving if conditions are hazardous, to allow plows and other emergency vehicles to do their jobs quickly, safely and effectively. If you must travel, drive slowly and allow plenty of time to reach your destination.
   
Inclement weather delays leaf collection, road work
Curbside leaf collection is running several days behind, due to heavy collection volume and snowfall this past Sunday and Tuesday. Crews are scheduled to work through the next two weekends to complete remaining routes as quickly as possible; however, residents are advised that additional snowfall - including the potential storm forecast for tomorrow, could further delay the process. We thank you in advance for your continued patience and cooperation as we work to complete this operation. For more information, call the Department of Public Works at (856) 424-4422.
Additionally, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) has postponed scheduled paving and reconstruction of Brace Road, which had been scheduled to begin on Wednesday of this week. A new schedule is not yet available, but information will be posted on the Township website as soon as it becomes available.

Mayor, Council honor Councilwoman Jacquelene SilverSilver.jpg
Also on Monday, Council and I honored Councilwoman Jacquelene Silver, whose term expires at the end of this year, for her dedicated service to the people of Cherry Hill for the last first year. Since being elected in 2009, Councilwoman Silver has served as the Township's environmental liaison, and been an advocate for sustainability initiatives, outdoor recreation, and open space. And despite her busy schedule as a mother and full-time teacher, Jacquelene has always been available to help residents in need. She has served the people of Cherry Hill with passion, and fulfilled her role as Councilwoman admirably, and she will be missed. Please join me in thanking Jacquelene for her service to our community.

Cherry Hill, CHAACA honor former Councilwoman Joyce WalkerJoyce Walker.jpg
The Township and the Cherry Hill African-American Civic Association (CHAACA) recently came together to honor longtime resident and former Councilwoman Joyce Alexander Walker for her many contributions to our community through the years. Walker, who currently serves as a member of the Board of Fire Commissioners, was the first African-American woman elected to Cherry Hill Township Council, a post she held from 1998 to 2005, and one of the first women to graduate from Princeton University. Additionally, she has been active in a number of faith-based and community groups and nonprofit organizations. Joyce has been a champion for women in government and in business, and a staunch advocate for the underprivileged. On top of her professional accomplishments, Joyce is a beloved friend and a loving wife, mother and grandmother. As the CHAACA executive board noted in its commendation, Joyce exemplifies the qualities to which we all should aspire: Honor, dedication to our fellow citizens, and a drive for excellence in all she has done. It is an honor for Council and I to pay tribute to a good friend who has served our community selflessly for years, and truly made our world a better place to live.

I would like to formally invite Cherry Hill residents and those who work in the Township to join me and members of my staff at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 18, for our next Walk with the Mayor at Cherry Hill Mall. Over the course of 45 minutes to an hour, we will take a brisk, 2-mile walk around the inside of the Mall.

And since it's the holiday shopping season, the stores in the mall will be open while we walk!

East students advance to the National High School Ethics Bowl
On Dec. 6, seven students from Cherry Hill East won first place at the Philadelphia Regional Qualifier of the National High School Ethics Bowl at Villanova University. Nine high schools from the tri-state area competed in the event, and the East team's victory has earned them an invitation to the National HS Ethics Bowl in Chapel Hill, N.C., in April, where they will face off against teams from across the country. Congratulations to competitors Lele Meng, Alysia Poletti, Samantha Stein, Max DuBoff, Kevin Pang, Mason Williams, and Srihari Shankar. We are proud of all that you've achieved, and look forward to your continued success at the national level!           
           
Honoring longtime Cherry Hill businesses: Springdale FarmSpringdale Farm.jpg
Another one of Cherry Hill's oldest businesses is also its last working farm: Springdale Farm. Alan and Mary Ebert purchased the farm on Springdale Road in 1949, and it is still being operated today by the Ebert-Jarvis Family. The farm has been a wonderful community partner, an advocate for community education and access to fresh, locally grown food, and a strong supporter of the Mayor's Wellness Campaign. If you haven't stopped by, I highly encourage you to check out the farm one of these days; it truly is a treasure in our backyard! Each of the businesses we've highlighted in the past few weeks has become a living piece of Cherry Hill’s history, and I’m honored to be able to recognize their longstanding investment and presence in our community. Read more about this project in the Courier-Post and the Cherry Hill Sun. If you know of a business that has been around for 50 years or more, please let us know by calling (856) 488-7878, or e-mailing me at MayorCahn@chtownship.com.
