LaToya Dunston is a new Council member in Atlantic City. Will she get the respect she deserves from Mayor Marty Small?
During the Dec. 6 meeting, Dunstan emotionally shared that her transition hasn’t been easy. In office for almost a full month with no work phone, official email address, or City Hall office access. Why the hold-up?
Did Atlantic City Mayor Small Harass New Council Woman?
Dunstan was also forced to take a drug test and fill out application forms. Had to be fingerprinted too. ‘I know it’s personal. No one else went thru that process’, says Dunstan.
According to Press of Atlantic City: City policy does not require elected officials to be drug tested, fingerprinted or complete an application.

As a woman, LaToya felt mistreated. Bullied. Tormented. Not being supported.
Dunston coming in with fresh eyes. Challenging the status quo. Pretty scary stuff for Team Small.
A strong black woman inside Marty Small’s City Hall. Can Mayor Marty handle that? Why make it so tough for the new councilwoman?
The 36 yr old Dunstan started the Xclusive Drill Team more than a decade ago.
Dunstan: I’m gonna stand up. I gonna fight. I want the public to know. I’m not gonna allow anyone to say [to me] ‘vote this way’.
Bundling and jamming thru all these contracts & resolutions. Dunstan has a problem with that. Why group everything together?
