Mayor Cahn speaks to the Cherry Hill Chamber of CommerceMC Chamber event.jpg
On Tuesday, I was the guest speaker at the Cherry Hill Chamber of Commerce's annual Mayoral Luncheon, where I spoke to about 100 representatives of our local business community to discuss the state of affairs across all aspects of our Township. For more than a half hour, we talked about the state of the Township, looked back at our accomplishments in 2014, and took a look ahead to what I believe will be a bright 2014.
