Courier Post- CFP Annual Meeting Recap 2016
CAMDEN — Mayor Dana Redd said Wednesday the city is "progressing and rising to unprecedented levels of promise," but acknowledged there was still much work to do to make sure residents were not left behind as Camden welcomes new growth and development.
Delivering her State of the City address at the Cooper's Ferry Partnership annual meeting at Adventure Aquarium, Redd told city, county and state officials, business and civic leaders that Camden is "beginning to see our seeds grow" after her six years in office, time she said was spent getting the city's finances in order, emphasizing public safety through the creation of a county-run police force and breaking down silos within city government.
Still, she said, the city will "fall flat" if it fails to ensure its residents benefit from the millions of dollars in tax breaks and incentives that have spurred companies including Subaru, Holtec and the Philadelphia 76ers to relocate to the city, and the expansion of existing city institutions such as Rutgers University-Camden and Cooper University Hospital.
