Congratulations to Cory Booker!

Many congratulations to Newark Mayor, Cory Booker, who was elected to the U.S. Senate this week. Booker will become New Jersey’s first ever African American senator and will fill the seat once held by long-serving Democratic senator, Frank Lautenberg, who died in June.

Back in 2007, we were honored to have the new Mayor as the keynote speaker at the CHPC luncheon – introduced by former American football running back, Tiki Barber. You can revisit that speech here:

Mayor Ed Koch Remembered


So much has been said and will be said about the legacy of Mayor Ed Koch. For those who care about housing and neighborhoods there is already a long list of accolades that his work has so rightly received.

So here is what we would like to add to the many voices remembering Mayor Koch.

Mayor Koch’s Ten Year Plan was not a housing plan: it was a sustained, unprecedented, and remarkable commitment to save and rebuild neighborhoods that most had given up on.  It began with a brave and extraordinarily risky decision to take over much of the City’s …
