Today’s Press of Atlantic City reports that Willie Norwood will be/is running for Mayor as an Independent candidate.
ATLANTIC CITY – Running for public office requires a very simple change for Willie Norwood. He types out the office he seeks and prints it out. He then cuts out that title and pastes it to a flier he made in the late 1990s, which simply declares himself as a candidate and features two aged pictures of him with Democratic U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg and former U.S. Sen. Robert Torricelli.
Mr. Norwood might not want to be seen with The Torch, in light of Mr. Torricelli’s run-ins with the FBI.
Michael Clark continues:
Norwood’s campaign will likely be run the same way as his others, insisting on getting questions answered and issues addressed by his fellow candidates Mayor Scott Evans, former Mayor Lorenzo Langford, Domenic Cappella, the city’s assistant business administrator, and independent Joseph Polillo.
There is also a Republican candidate, John McQueen, Jr., for Mr. Norwood to hold accountable. I have enjoyed listening to Mr. Norwood on talk radio and wish him well in the election. He is just a little too Socialist for my taste.
