The Honorable Chuck Cahn has served as Cherry Hill’s Mayor since January 2, 2012.
Since taking office, Mayor Cahn has successfully worked to promote a transparent and fiscally responsible government, implemented policies and practices to help attract hundreds of new businesses to Cherry Hill, passed sweeping reforms aimed at preserving the integrity and charm of the Township’s close-knit neighborhoods, and made government more accessible for every resident.
A proven business leader with more than 30 years of experience and expertise, Mayor Cahn evaluates every program and every line item in the budget, so that Cherry Hill can deliver the highest level of services while providing stable taxes to everyone - from young, hardworking families to senior citizens.
Under Mayor Cahn’s leadership, and through his practical approach to running the Township like a business, Cherry Hill has enjoyed tremendous economic success. The Township has reduced its long-term debt, seen vast revitalization of underutilized properties, welcomed a host of new businesses of all sizes, and become the “healthcare hub” of our region.
This growth in Cherry Hill’s economy has allowed the Mayor to increase and improve municipal services for the Township’s residents without raising taxes. Indeed one of Mayor Cahn’s proudest achievements is that municipal taxes have not increased in eight years.
Preserving the integrity and charm of Cherry Hill’s residential community has been his number one priority. Cherry Hill’s charming, close-knit neighborhoods are what the Mayor calls ‘the quilt of the community’ which make this town such a great place to live. The Mayor has lived in Cherry Hill for nearly his entire life.
Raised in Cherry Hill's Haddontowne neighborhood, Mayor Cahn attended Woodcrest Elementary School, Heritage Middle School (now Rosa) and Cherry Hill East High School.
As President and CEO of Stewart Business Systems, Mayor Cahn built his family's company from a small office equipment company into a successful technology business that employed more than 250 people over eight offices in three states. Mayor Cahn sold the business in 2004.
Mayor Cahn has served on numerous business, community and charitable boards and has received several business, community service, and achievement awards.
Mayor Cahn holds a dual degree in Economics and Business from Rutgers College. He and his wife, Stephanie, have been married for almost forty years and are the proud parents of three children: David (Remy), Matthew, and Elizabeth. He is also the proud grandfather of Jamie and Asher.
