New Jersey Governor, Phil Murphy, is a vicious liar and a vicious racist. So said activist Craig Callaway during the Feb 19 Atlantic City Council meeting. The former Council President also called out Mayor Marty Small for interfering with appointments.
Callaway not happy that two Muslim women have yet to be placed on the MUA (AC Water Company) board. Callaway placing much of the blame on NJ Lt Governor, Sheila Oliver.
Racially profiled… because they had a hijab on. Where did this all start? The Mayor of Atlantic City. Marty Small. So says Callaway, who said this happened under the watch of an African American woman (Sheila Oliver) who let vile racism take place.
Callaway: Mayor Small told DCA’s Rob Long that ‘these two Muslim women were not good women. Not a good fit.’
Small was also accused of playing dirty tricks with 2nd Ward Councilwoman LaToya Dunston.
Callaway says Small made moves to thwart appointment of two Muslim women to the MUA board, who were OKed by Council back in January 2020 to become board members of the MUA, aka the Atlantic City Water Company.
Callaway claims Marty Small was doing a favor for his lawyer, Joe Jacobs. ‘It’s about contracts’, says Callaway.
‘Because Jacobs hangs his law license on people who get contracts with the MUA, the board was going to change and he was going to lose his spot at the trough. So he called on his people to exclude and to racially profile.’
Standing in for DCA’s Rob Long during the council meeting was Kim Holmes, the assistant commissioner of DCA. She says Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver was still reviewing the matter.
Callaway: Shame on Sheila Oliver for not stopping this. There’s only one thing that’s worse than racism and discrimination ….. is when African Americans are the perpetrators. African Americans who think they are elite.
Callaway: Damn Phil Murphy, Damn Sheila Oliver.
