May 16, 2024 – The Alliance for Action headed south to the Salvation Army Kroc Center Thursday morning for the 10th Annual City of Camden Program. 

There was a stellar lineup to provide more information on the upcoming construction opportunities in the growing city. This included:

  • Victor Carstarphen, Mayor, City of Camden
  • Louis Capelli, Jr., Commissioner Director, City of Camden
  • John Hanson, Chief Executive Officer, Delaware River Port Authority
  • Louis Bezich, Senior Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer, Cooper University Health Care
  • Rich Schaefer, Senior Vice President of Capital Programs, NJ Transit
  • David Forcinito, Senior Director of South Operations, New Jersey American Water

Billions of dollars are being invested into the city to revitalize the region for its residents and visitors. It’s bringing in new businesses, schools, mixed-use developments, and so much more. Cooper University has made very large investments into the city and continues to expand. 

The Walter Rand Transportation Center has made great strides toward better transportation for commuters throughout the city. The Delaware River Port Authority is investing millions of dollars into improving their bridges and PATCO lines, and continues to push the needed infrastructure of the Glassboro-Camden Light Rail. 

“The City of Camden is a powerhouse for new opportunities,” said Alliance President Jerry Keenan, “The fact that we’re going on our 10th year of this event is a testament to that.”   

Camden has come a long way and continues to make huge investments to revitalize the rising city!
