More endorsements show Carstarphen as likely Moran successor in Camden

By David Wildstein, March 06 2021 12:57 pm

Three Democrats who represent the City of Camden in the New Jersey Legislature today endorsed Vic Carstarphen for mayor.

“Vic is a natural leader who unites people. From his legendary Camden High championship basketball-playing and coaching days, to mentoring thousands of Camden youth, Vic will be the leader who brings our youthful city together,” said State Sen. Nilsa Cruz-Perez (D-Barrington) and Assemblymen William Spearman (D-Camden) and Bill Moen (D-Camden).

Carstarphen has quickly emerged as the leading contender to replace Mayor Frank Moran, who said on Friday that he will resign on April 30 for health reasons.

Carstarphen, a local basketball legend, spent ten years as a Camden Board of Education member and is now in his second year as a city councilman.
