AC City Council, Atlantic City Acting Mayor

Who is the Mayor?

Many people came to the City Council meeting to determine who is Atlantic City’s Mayor.  Many people left more confused than when they arrived.

Immediately following a rambling history on racism, given by Councilman Eugene Robinson, Councilman William Marsh called on James Leonard, Jr. to give his legal recommendation for how Council should proceed.  Last Friday, Business Administrator Dominic Cappella declared that he is the Acting Mayor of Atlantic City.

 Elected Mayor Bob Levy has been neither seen, nor heard from since some time last week.  B.A. Cappella alleges that he has a legal charge from Levy to serve as Acting Mayor.  Levy is again somewhere on medical leave.  Marsh and many citizens affiliated with the Committee to Recall Bob Levy claim that Levy did not legally delegate Cappella as Acting Mayor.

Councilman G. Bruce Ward said that he came to Council Chambers with the intent of taking steps so that Marsh could claim leadership of the City.  Ward wants Marsh to set-up shop on the 7th floor as Acting Mayor at 12 noon, Thursday afternoon.

There are more details on the Council meeting to follow, including, yet not limited to, the proposed Holocaust Memorial on the Boardwalk, more citizen comments from the public forum portion, Cappella’s argument from his heart, Councilman Robinson’s “Humility,” Alice Gordon and Muslim Turks, and the spectre of Seth Grossman, which is the real reason that there is no Mayor in Atlantic City.

  1. I recommended a change to a non-partisan form of Mayor Council Government with 4 wards and 7 council members in August of 1976. Although the voters approved that change in November of 1976, Polillo filed suit and had the vote of the people thrown out on a technicality. I then recommended a non-partisan form of Mayor Council Government with 2 wards and 5 council members. That was rejected by the voters in January of 1978. I never supported the current form with 9 council members and 6 wards that was adopted in 1981, and then changed to partisan form 20 years later. How can anyone blame me for the current mess? My proposal was never adopted, and even if it were, it was more than a quarter of a century ago. That would be like blaming George Washington for George Bush!

  2. So who is the frontrunner for mayor now? Ward, Marsh, Mason? Levy has been a joke from the start and Levy needs to resign.
