Is the City Council of Atlantic City helping…or hurting the re-invention of our seaside resort? Atlantic City has been held back once again by a few on Council more concerned with votes, than economic turn-around. The Boardwalk Beverage ordinance has been delayed once again. LISTEN TO the ACprimetime Radio report.
At the most recent council meeting, a majority of elected leaders squashed a critical ‘Boardwalk beverage’ ordinance. This economy killing opportunity was lead by the infamous, Councilman George Tibbett, who recently was caught by a 6 ABC Action News sting operation. Tibbett was video-taped using a City vehicle for personal use, something he claimed he stopped doing 2 years prior.
Also against the open container ordinance is Councilman Frank Gilliam Jr.
Ironically, the former Council President is pushing for legalization of Marijuana in Atlantic City.
Another who says no for now: Council President, Marty Small. This Mayoral hopeful likely doesn’t want to offend a very small, but vocal group of local voters.
Should AC’s economic recovery be overseen by a handful of elected party-poopers?
