Centerville Simbas celebrate 50th season

by Namibia El

Camden’s oldest youth football league, the Centerville Simbas recently gathered to recognize its rising stars at their annual awards banquet. This year’s banquet was held at the H.B. Wilson School in the Centerville neighborhood where many of the players attend. Players in each weight division were awarded based upon the Simba’s five guiding pillars: academics, discipline, loyalty, pride, and teamwork. Both parents and youth were excited about the awards and the beginning of a new season. Parents had an opportunity get a jumpstart with early registration. This year the Simbas will have all-new uniforms manufactured by a Black-owned company.

Camden Residents Respond to Camden Political Leaders' Comments about Governor Murphy

by Amir Khan

Camden, NJ  - On the heels of the recent comments from Mayor Frank Moran, council President Curtis Jenkins, and State Senator Nilsa Cruz-Perez in which they declared that the Governor is not welcome in Camden. It also comes after last week's "political pep rally" with former governors and other state actors, an event that was not open to the public or Camden residents. It also comes after months of advocacy by Camden residents and educators on behalf of our public schools and public workers, who have been marginalized.

The Governor is more than welcome in Camden, and in fact we invite him here. 89% of Camden residents voted for Governor Murphy in 2017, and he's been a strong supporter of the City since his election. We look forward to working with him to make Camden even stronger. 

It is also important to note that residents do not see the recent exercise in governmental accountability via the Tax Credit Task Forces as an "attack" on Camden, but rather a welcome process to root out possible corruption that has preyed on our city and exploited its impoverished residents.

Camden residents welcome Governor Murphy

by Namibia El

Camden residents and community leaders welcomed a visit from New Jersey governor, Phil Murphy to the city on the fourth of July. Last May, Camden elected officials made a public announcement stating that the Governor was not welcome in the city until he stopped attacking it. 

This statement was prompted after the governor assembled a task force to investigate apparent abuse of corporate tax breaks granted by the state’s Economic Development Authority. The Mayor and other local elected officials were outraged over the task force claiming that the Governor was unfairly attacking and targeting the city. However, State Spokesman Darryl Isherwood said the investigation into the tax incentives is the result of a report written by the state comptroller appointed by former Gov. Chris Christie.

Shortly after Camden officials berated the Governor, Camden residents took a stance, stating that the Mayor and other officials did not speak for them, and that the Governor was indeed welcome to visit the city. Last month, Ronsha Dickerson, Director of Education and Events for the Unity Community Center, a prominent community non-profit in the city, and fellow members of the Camden We Choose coalition organized an “equity” tour for Kevin Quinn, Murphy’s new pick to chair the state’s Economic Development Authority, which oversees the tax-credit programs.
