Read about Senator Norcross' efforts to keep the Children's Garden in Camden
â€śThe Camden Childrenâ€™s Garden is where it belongs â€” right here in Camden,â€ť Sen. Donald Norcross (D-5, of Camden) said to the crowd assembled to protest the stateâ€™s eviction of the gardens from the riverfront property it inhabited for more than a decade.
Legislation by Senator Donald Norcross and Assemblymen Angel Fuentes and Gilbert â€śWhipâ€ť Wilson (D-Camden/Gloucester) making possible the sale of the Riverfront State Prison site in Camden was signed into law today.
â€śThis was the last hurdle to beginning development at the former site of Riverfront State Prison,â€ť said Senator Norcross. â€śThe land is in a premium location for a variety of potential uses, each of which would bring jobs and economic opportunity to the city. This couldnâ€™t come at a better time for our residents, or the State.â€ť
Letter to the Editor in the South Jersey Times
There is a bill making its way through state government that would make sure that jobs created from the post-Hurricane-Sandy recovery are given to people from New Jersey.
The bill is sponsored by two local legislators, Senate President Stephen Sweeney, D-3, and Sen. Donald Norcross, D-5.
This is something that the people of this state sorely need. With our unemployment as high as it is and every single state around us doing better, we need something that will help us first. And what a more fitting way to rebuild our state than by having people from our state do the job.
(TRENTON) â€“ The Senate Law and Public Safety Committee today approved legislation by Senator Donald Norcross (D-Camden/Gloucester) giving police authority to remove the instruments that make it easier for people to carry out certain crimes.
â€śThis is a common sense deterrent to help our police more effectively curtail crime,â€ť said Senator Norcross. â€śLet perpetrators be on notice â€“ this sort of activity will not be tolerated in our cities.â€ť
