Congressman Andrews Pushes for New Jobs in Local Tourism

Congressman Andrews announced that the National Parks Service has begun to explore our region’s potential for a new and booming tourism industry along the Delaware River. At the Congressman’s request, the parks service will review whether the southern stretch of the Delaware River, running from Trenton to Salem, should be incorporated in the National Parks System – a determination that will increase federal aid for our area, boost tourism, and create new job opportunities for the people of South Jersey.

Andrews Announces $574M Contract for Lockheed Martin Moorestown to Advance High-Tech Missile System
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last week, Congressman Andrews announced that Lockheed Martin received a $574 million contract with the U.S. Department of Defense to continue production of a high-tech missile system. The award will help sustain thousands of jobs at the South Jersey facility and provide our military with the best weapons available. Congressman Andrews was a staunch supporter of the funding which came through the National Defense Authorization Act which was signed into law last month. The $574 million contract will allow workers at Lockheed Martin in Moorestown to continue engineering, modernizing and producing the Aegis Combat System (ACS), which uses an integrated network of advanced sensors, computers, and weapons to destroy incoming threats.  Known as “the Shield of the Fleet,” the high-powered radar component performs search, tracking, and missile guidance functions simultaneously, protecting the fleet from a variety of threats, including ballistic missiles.  This cont
Congressman Andrews Announces $3.2M to Create Jobs and Preserve Affordable Housing in Pennsauken
Camden, NJ—Last Wednesday, Congressman Andrews announced a $3.2 million grant from the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (FHLB).  According to the FHLB, the grant will create between 75 to 100 constructions jobs in South Jersey. The grant, part of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act 2013, will pay for the rehabilitation of a 304-unit affordable housing community in Pennsauken known as Sycamore Ridge, which is in critical need of upgrades and repairs to remain a viable and safe option for South Jersey families to live. Sycamore Ridge is a garden-style apartment complex containing 18 buildings with 152 one-bedroom apartments, 142 two-bedroom apartments and 10 three-bedroom apartments.  The property also includes an on-site management office, community room, central laundry facilities and outdoor playgrounds.  This project aims to rehabilitate Sycamore Ridge to a standard of quality high enough to ensure the property remains s
Rep. Andrews Nominates Thirty-Five to Military Service Academies
HADDON HEIGHTS, NJ –Thursday, Congressman Andrews proudly nominated thirty-five outstanding young men and women to attend our nation’s military service academies. These individuals have demonstrated a commitment to their country and to excellence by fulfilling their academic, extracurricular and community responsibilities with merit. As a result, these individuals have been chosen to represent the First Congressional District and their country with pride and distinction, a designation they richly deserve. Our nation’s service academies play an integral role in building and maintaining the strength of our military by serving as an incubator for the future commanders of each branch of the Armed Forces. For generations, these institutions have produced the best and brightest leaders in the world. Today, many graduates are leading the way in our military’s efforts to defend America against terror, while countless other graduates continue to excel beyond their call of duty as succe
Congressman Andrews Calls on Congress To Extend Unemployment Benefits for South Jersey Families
Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Andrews urged leaders of the House of Representatives to extend federal emergency unemployment benefits.  Over 10,000 unemployed people in Camden, Gloucester and Burlington Counties saw their unemployment benefits end at the end of last month and were left with no reasonable prospect of income to take its place.  Without extending these benefits, these 10,000 South Jerseyans are at risk of losing their homes, apartments, or the ability to feed their families.  Congressman Andrews voted for the Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program in 2008 to provide crucial support to the economy and to millions of Americans who lost jobs through no fault of their own during the height of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.  The Congressman has urged his colleagues to come together once again to help those in need. While substantial progress has been made, more work remains to boost economic growth and speed job creation. Despite
