Orange Housing Authority Holds Workshop to Connect New Jobs with City Residents

The Orange Housing Authority and the Orange Housing Development Corporation are looking for qualified laborers and local contractors interested in building the Walter G. Alexander Village, Phase III. 

A workshop was held September 30 at Washington Manor, featuring comments from Orange Mayor Dwayne Warren and North Ward Councilwoman Tency Eason, both of whom urged local workers to take full advantage of the many opportunities through this project.


Willis Edwards III Stepping Down

Effective September 18, Orange's Deputy Business Administrator Willis Edwards III has stepped down from his post.

The Business Administrator position has been open for too long, and as per sources, the administration could not continue with Edwards III as Deputy Business Administrator, as he cannot be a Deputy Business Administrator without the actual Business Administrator's position being filled.

According to Willis Edwards III, "No Order was provided by the judge. It was amicably done for all parties involved. I do not have animosity towards anyone. But it was not a judge's decision."

Orange Reacts to Week of Shootings

Acting Police Director John Wade and Mayor Dwayne D. Warren have separately gone to the public Sept. 15-16 about what Orange's finest will be immediately doing.
