COUNTY CANDIDATES’ STATEMENT ON ATLANTIC CITY
(ABSECON) Sheriff Eric Scheffler, Surrogate candidate Stephen Dicht, Freeholder Caren Fitzpatrick, and Freeholder candidates Celeste Fernandez and Thelma Witherspoon released the following joint statement:

“We were saddened to see yesterday’s vibrant, peaceful protest hijacked by non-Atlantic City residents that incited violence. These individuals exploited the emotions of Atlantic County residents mourning the murder of George Floyd in order to loot and destroy small businesses in Atlantic City.

“We fully support the efforts of the peaceful protestors who seek to end institutional racism in our country. Dr. King once said ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ We must continue to speak out and make our voices heard, but we condemn in the strongest possible terms anyone who tries to destroy our great city.”
