Former Atlantic County Commissioner Ashley Bennett today endorsed Mico Lucide for Atlantic County
Her full statement can be found below:
“It is rare that we are given an opportunity to elevate diversity and inclusion in our government. It is even rarer that we have the opportunity to steer the course away from old and tired ways in our government, bringing people access to the political process and civic engagement. This year, we have an opportunity to do all of this and more.
“This is what I was excited to see when Mico Lucide launched his campaign for Atlantic County Clerk. Over the past 3 years, I’ve gotten to know Mico and see how intelligent he is. His passion for voting rights drives him to ensure people from all walks of life can engage in the civic process. He continues to fight for diversity and inclusion for marginalized communities, despite the consistent obstacles and hardship, because it is what Atlantic County needs. His story will resonate with people; especially those feel left out of the political process.
“Mico’s candidacy will energize people and will usher in the next generation of leadership Atlantic County needs. As a person who values providing access to those who often feel that they do not have it and as someone who advocates for fresh perspectives and ideas, it is my honor to endorse Mico Lucide for Atlantic County Clerk. He is an excellent candidate that will set the standard for what people should expect from their county clerk.”
The statement is signed: Ashley Bennett; Former County Commissioner, District 3, 2018 to 2021
