Editorial: Delaware Nation back home in New Jersey

"While few solid details have emerged, there is a promising alliance now in place focused on a greener future for the Mercer County area.

The leader of the Delaware Nation, a Lenape Indian tribe that once thrived along the Delaware River, has returned to the home of his ancestors with a plan for green technology jobs and redevelopment of state-owned parking lots.

Kerry Holton, the Delaware leader, has joined with Trenton Mayor Douglas H. Palmer and longtime city booster Shelly Zeiger to investigate projects that range from manufacturing solar panels on Duck Island to establishing a center for high-tech communications in the city.

The growing emphasis on green technology and lingering economic downturn have contributed to a convergence of timing, funding, and demand."
