Cherry Hill - Congressman Donald Norcross announced he has accepted invitations to participate in two debates prior to the 2016 Primary Election on June 7th. Both events are being planned by leading non-partisan organizations serving South Jersey and all First Congressional District candidates have been invited to participate.


“I welcome the opportunity to debate my fellow candidates and highlight my record of service and results for the people of South Jersey,” said Congressman Norcross today.  “These debates will ensure that critical issues facing our community will be addressed in a substantive, fair manner, which is something voters deserve.”

The first debate will be hosted by the Southern New Jersey Chamber of Commerce in Voorhees, Camden County. The second will be jointly hosted by the Gloucester and Camden County chapters of the NAACP, the Jewish Community Relations Council of South Jersey, and the Islamic center of South Jersey, and moderated by the League of Women Voters of New Jersey. That debate will take place at Rowan College of Gloucester County in Deptford.

“I have dedicated my adult life to helping build stronger communities and creating family sustaining jobs.  In Congress, I have been focused on creating good jobs and higher wages, a secure nation and safe neighborhoods, more educational opportunity and less debt for college students, and greater access to quality health care for families, seniors, and veterans," said Congressman Norcross. "I look forward to discussing those issues and I thank the organizations involved for their commitment to informing our community."
