South Jersey Observer (SJO) is an award winning local news website based in Camden County, N.J. with a focus on Bellmawr, Gloucester City, Brooklawn, Westville, Runnemede, and Mt. Ephraim.

It’s brought to you by me, Anne Forline, a longtime Bellmawr resident.  I am SJO’s editor, publisher, and sole content writer.

As a journalist, I bring to you over a decade of reporting experience. My bylines have appeared in many local and national publications.

I established SJO in February, 2016 because the time was finally right for me to bring online local news coverage to my neighbors.

You can continue to expect articles from me about what’s happening in school board and town council meetings.

I will report back to you about what your elected officials are voting on and how they voted. I’ll also share with you stories about what local people are doing to make our communities a better place.
