Beyond Atlantic City

Forum Awards

The Most Comfortable Candidate– Dennis Levinson, Atlantic County Incumbent Executive.

Best Projection and Emotion– Nick Asselta, District 1 Incumbent Senator.

Most Intelligent– Michael Donohue, District 1 Assembly candidate.  Mr. Donohue was the next-to-last candidate to speak on the Stem-Cell Bonding Question.  He was the only candidate to demonstrate an understanding of the subject of stem-cells.  He manifested his grasp of the subject, explaining his position in relation to the two-fold division of stem-cells: adult and embryonic, all in less than a minute.  

I complemented Mr. Donohue afterwards.  He replied, “I am a straight-shooter.”

Most Brave – Jim Whelan, District 2 Senate Challenger.  He took a position opposing everyone else who had spoke and alienating the entire crowd.  He did not gain any friends to his ideas.  He did show the fortitude that a statesman is supposed to have.

Most Boring – The woman next to me – my wife sat on one side and this woman sat on the other – remarked to my wife, “Besides (Whelan) being boring, he was wrong.”  


About Jesse O. Kurtz

I am committed to fulfilling the promise of Atlantic City. The town would benefit from greater political participation by average citizens. Hopefully, some of the posts herein will encourage you to get more involved in your community. This blog will also feature other topics and subjects beyond Atlantic City. I hope that you will come to love Atlantic City as much, or more than I do.
