Flags at half-staff for Camden Mayor Randy Primas

    Flags in Camden are flying low for Randy Primas, the city’s former chief operating officer and mayor.

    “His devotion to public service and commitment to Camden and her residents will surely be missed,” Mayor Dana Redd said in a release issued today.
    “As we come out of celebrating Black History month, we should all remember Mr. Primas for his fight for social justice and his achievement in becoming the first African-American elected mayor of Camden.”
