Committee Backs Three For Interim Mayor Of AC

Three candidates chosen by the Atlantic City Democratic Committee to fill out the term of now-former mayor Frank Gilliam Jr. The Press of Atlantic City reports Interim Mayor Marty Small Sr., Pamela Thomas-Fields and Gwendolyn Callaway Lewis were unanimously selected by the panel. Now, City Council has 30 days to select one of the three nominees to serve an unexpired term until an election in November 2020. Thomas-Fields and Callaway Lewis both said they support Small. Gilliam resigned last week while admitting to stealing $87,000 from a youth basketball program.
