Mayor Evans Loses In Trenton

   The Press of Atlantic City’s editorial today pointed out the imprudence of Mayor Scott Evans’s behavior in Trenton as well as his reaction to the meeting.

And the day after the Trenton hearing, Evans’ and Gallagher’s childish, personal attacks on Sen. Jim Whelan, the bill’s sponsor, only added to the city’s questionable reputation.

   The Press hesitatingly endorses Senator Jim Whelan’s plan for state takeover of Badar Field development.

The bill would require Local Finance Board approval any time a city wants to sell a piece of property worth more than the city’s previous year’s budget. But make no mistake – the measure is all about the Bader Field site, believed to be worth $1 billion, and would likely never apply to any other situation. You can say the bill is a heavy-handed approach – but unfortunately, the city’s handling of this matter so far suggests that it’s necessary.

Mayor Evans is losing the public relations and legislative battles involved with Badar Field.  We hope that he fights the battle for property tax relief.

  1. Evans has shown his true colors. He’s embarrassing the city and should withdraw his candidacy in the June primary.
