AC Mayor Small Endorses Fulop for Governor
Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small, Sr., is endorsing Steve Fulop for Governor and will serve as the Jersey City Mayor’s Campaign Co-Chair, focused on organizing Atlantic County and South Jersey on behalf of the Fulop for Governor Campaign.
Showing sharp political organizing skills in fighting off a referendum that sought to change Atlantic City’s charter and re-elected in 2021 to a full term, Mayor Small has established himself as a rising star in the Democratic Party and a strong leader who is positioning Atlantic City for a brighter future. Now Mayor Small is adding his support to the Fulop for Governor campaign and taking on a leadership role in the effort.
“Mayors have a unique understanding of the skills necessary to lead and they have executive experience that qualifies them to be effective in the office of Governor,” said Small. “I’m proud to call Steve Fulop a friend and his accomplishments in Jersey City as a Mayor speak for themself. He is a transformational leader who will work tirelessly to help our state reach new heights, and I look forward to working closely with Mayor Fulop to make this campaign a success.”
Fulop announced his candidacy recently with a launch video that showcased his service in the U.S. Marines and the massive progress he has brought to Jersey City over the last ten years. He secured the backing of the Hudson County Democratic Organization (HCDO), and later announced an experienced campaign team with both nationally recognized consultants and leaders with significant history of winning New Jersey elections.
“After decades of Atlantic City struggling, Mayor Small is moving the community forward with major redevelopment initiatives, lower property taxes and improved services, and I could not be more proud to have him join our campaign,” said Fulop. “Mayors are on the front lines of government and have a tremendous responsibility to deliver what their constituents need every day — there’s no more difficult or rewarding job in politics. As Governor I will bring that experience as a Mayor to the State House and enact policies that support local government and help it deliver the progress that residents deserve.”
Mayor Marty Small’s record of putting Atlantic City on the right track includes a $2.7 billion development plan at the long dormant Bader Field property, four straight property decreases, investing more money in youth and senior programs and increasing tourism. Atlantic City represents both the largest block of Democratic Primary votes in Atlantic County and a large portion of its Democratic County Committee seats, both putting the Fulop For Governor campaign in a strong position to build support in the county.
