BRING ATLANTIC CITY BACK

Posted on May 14, 2020 at 11:55 AM Comments comments (3)

 

NOW THAT THE REFERENDUM HAS BEEN DEFEATED,

IT’S TIME TO CLEAN OUT ATLANTIC CITY

 

HALL’S SWAMP, AND RESILIENTLY


“BRING ATLANTIC CITY BACK”


Now that the referendum has been defeated in Atlantic City, Democratic Primary Mayoral

Candidate Jimmy Whitehead is poised to make his official announcement next week.

Jimmy Whitehead intends to bring “fresh ideas and change to the governance of Atlantic City

with a pathway highlighting an avant garde economic development plan providing a resilient

recovery and non-casino jobs. I do not owe anyone or any special interest group anything, I

only owe the people of Atlantic City the best possible representation, which is long overdue.”

On the referendum: “We just experienced an unprecedented attempt by outside interests to

change Atlantic City’s form of government. The referendum was possible because it is obvious

the city remains broken, but fortunately the People of Atlantic City recognized we need to

control our destiny. Now it is time to roll up our sleeves and give the all Atlantic City the “good,

mature, accountable, compliant, and transparent governance” City Hall leadership deserves

and needs. I want term limits on local seats also. The same people in office have led us where

we are, with over 40% residents living in poverty.

Mr. Whitehead will soon present a development plan focused on non-casino mixed-used

development, and needed reform within all departments of Atlantic City. We are a service

oriented city, and cannot get service from our city hall. Additionally, Jimmy Whitehead’s

economic plans include special infrastructure projects which will be highlighted that will create

thousands of new union steelworkers, electricians, carpenters, and longshore labor jobs.
