Atlantic City New Republican Club Formed, Officers Selected
Atlantic City – The New Republican Club was formed and officers selected during its first meeting. Jesse O. Kurtz was selected President, Walter Collette Treasurer, Henrietta Collette Secretary, and Domonique McQueen Membership Chairman.
“Only Communist states have one political party running the show,” said Club President Jesse O. Kurtz. The club believes that the resurgence of a second political party will lessen corruption in municipal government. The Republican Party is needed to create a debate on the issues affecting Atlantic City residents.
Atlantic City Republicans will spend the remaining time before November’s elections reaching out to voters to let them know that the Republican Party will fight to cut spending and lower taxes, as well as reform the corruption in city government. It is an uphill battle to even the playing field of voter registrations, which currently stands at a ratio of 7.25 Democrats for every one registered Republican. The Republicans are up for the challenge as they strive to gain legitimacy for their club.
The municipal committee also met. They replaced outgoing Municipal Chairman Walter Collette with Bob Derbyshire. Rebecca Orsatti is still the Vice-Chairman.
The Atlantic City New Republican Club will meet at 5:30pm on the second Wednesday of every month. The site for the 12 November meeting will be announced.
