What’s the latest on those Atlantic City supermarket plans? Crickets. Nada. Nothing. Pretty sure you can thank professional activist and peaceful protester, Steve Young for that one.
The May 31 riots and looting made ALL businesses re-think their plans for AC. Hell….even popular KFC and APPLE got out of town. What does that tell you?
Steve Young, a member of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, was largely blamed for the MAY 31 riots and looting of AC. Eventually arrested on July 4, Young lead a march that blocked the Albany Ave bridge and the Atlantic City expressway.
Is Steve Young still on Atlantic City Planning Board?Law-Abiding, AC Taxpayer
Will Mayor Marty Small & City Council lead a SUPPORT THE POLICE march thru Atlantic City? The fine citizens of Atlantic City want to know.
As Mayor Small says…..Families will move to AC if it’s safe, has good schools and plenty of jobs.
