NORTHFIELD – Residents packed City Hall Tuesday night to hear a presentation on the city’s affordable housing obligation as it relates to the multifamily housing development proposed by developer Max Gurwicz.

His firm represents 45 municipalities and specializes in Mount Laurel housing issues.

To the man, a father of two children, who found my purse on Churchill Drive, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are an angel on Earth.
