News – For Immediate Release – September 17, 2014






Trenton, N.J. – Mayor Eric Jackson today reappointed Gwendolyn Long Harris and Christopher Brashier to the Capital City Redevelopment Corporation (CCRC) board, a state economic development entity, and Mario J. Laurenti and Wanda D. Swiggett, Ph.D. to the city’s Planning Board. They will each serve four-year terms in their respective roles.


Additionally, the Mayor appointed Anthony Santora, the city’s Principal Traffic Analyst with 18 years of service, as the city’s representative on the Planning Board. He will serve a one-year term.


“I am confident that these individuals will continue to invest their knowledge, experience and commitment to Trenton and its people, into the CCRC and the city Planning Board to carry out their critical work,” said Mayor Jackson.


Dr. Gwendolyn Long Harris, an executive with an extensive background in public administration and human services, is Executive Director of the Senator Walter Rand Institute for Public Affairs at Rutgers University, Camden. Christopher H. Brashier is managing director at CHB Investment Group, an investment bank in New Hope, Pa., that he founded in 1998.


The CCRC is a state agency that operates under the auspices of the state Treasury Department. It was created by the State Legislature in 1988 to facilitate redevelopment of the capital district, which encompasses much of Trenton’s downtown area. Since then, it has invested more than $4 million in various projects and businesses and leveraged more than $75 million in public and private investment in Trenton. In June 2014, the CCRC entered into an agreement with the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA) to provide support services to strengthen and continue the CCRC’s mission and work.


Dr. Wanda D. Swiggett is a Research Project Manager at Educational Testing Service in Princeton, N.J., and Mario J. Laurenti is an aide to Mercer County Freeholder Andrew Koontz. As Principal Traffic Analyst, Anthony Santora assists various city departments with ongoing projects, including the Department of Housing and the Department of Inspections. He also reviews property subdivisions and consolidations on behalf of the city’s engineering office, and oversees various construction projects in the Division of Traffic and Transportation.


The overarching function of the city’s Planning Board, a municipal body, is to implement land-use ordinances, oversee land-use policies, and guide the orderly growth and development of the city. It is comprised of seven members appointed by the Mayor.
