ATLANTIC CITY
MAYOR
LORENZO LANGFORD
LAUNCHES
REELECTION BID
 
BEYOND CAPACITY CROWD (300 PEOPLE) JOIN LANGFORD ...
 
Atlantic County Democratic Chairman,
Jim Carroll a
NO SHOW!
 
This is disgraceful in light of the fact that Langford is the incumbent Mayor of the largest Democratic voting block in District 2 ...
 
Yet, Carroll has held secret meetings with Craig Callaway ...
 
 
 
 
Atlantic City Deputy Mayor Ernest Coursey introduced Atlantic County Freeholder, The Reverend Lawton Nelson, Jr.  ... Who delivered a resounding and electrifying introduction speech (for) Mayor Langford ... Langford followed with a poignant, articulate and detailed compilation of his 3-plus year record as Mayor ... and, Langford (without mentioning his opponent by name) ... blistered Craig ("Farooq Salaam") Callaway ... as a conflicted man, with a 30-year record of "destruction" vs. his 30-year record of constructive efforts to benefit the City of Atlantic City ...
 
Langford (again without mentioning any names) referred to his opponent as "a man with two identities ... two names ... two lives and two wives"!
 
He said it!
 
Langford detailed the many accomplishments of his administration, providing a great deal of specificity regarding tax policy ... budget preparedness ... Langford also mentioned that Standard and Poors and Moody's have expressed approval of his financial management of Atlantic City ...
 
Langford appeared confidant that the citizen/voters of Atlantic City know both him and his opponent quite well ...   
 
Editor's Note: Former (immediate past) Atlantic City PBA President, Sean McCausland was observed riding his bicycle back and forth during the Langford announcement event ... 
 
Also, Atlantic City police (not McCausland) were sent to the event to ticket attendees ... many of whom were parked in 15-minute zone (type) parking spots ...
 
Sadly, we expected such parochial and discourteous conduct ... and, we made it a point to park at a metered parking spot ...
 
Fortunately, a wise Atlantic City Superior Police officer stopped the ticket madness before it got out of hand ... We are not aware of any tickets being issued at this time ...  
 
Editor's Note 2: If you ever need someone to introduce you ... You better consider Freeholder Lawton Nelson, Jr.
 
It takes a lot to impress us ... and, Reverend Nelson delivered a speech that the late, great Dr. Martin Luther KingJr., have been proud to have delivered himself ... Come to think of it ... Nelson sounds similar to Dr. King ... However, believe it or not ... Nelson has an even better speaking voice than Dr. King ...
 
He commands attention when he speaks ... He was beyond impressive!
