ATLANTIC CITY â€“ Md Hossain Morshed became the fourth Atlantic City councilman to endorse Mayor Marty Small Sr. in the current mayoral race on Wednesday.
Morshed, who represents the Atlantic City’s Fourth Ward, joins fellow city council members Aaron “Sporty” Randolph, Kaleem Shabazz and George Tibbitt in endorsing Small. Small worked on side of many of the council members as president before he was elevated to the mayor’s position in October after Frank Gilliam pleaded guilty to federal wire fraud charge.
“â€¦ I am endorsing and supporting Marty Small Sr. for mayor and whole heartedly encourage my constituents to do the same,” Morshed said in a statement released Wednesday. “Since January, I’ve watched how Mayor Small handled three major crisis.
“He has successfully led us through the change in government fight. He is doing an excellent job in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic and he has shown real leadership with the recent violent protest and looting of businesses in our great city,” he added.
Small is running in the Democratic primary in an effort to complete Gilliam’s term against city employee and Stockton University adjunct professor Pamela Thomas-Fields.
“I truly admire Mayor Small’s vision, love, commitment and passion for Atlantic City, and look forward to being a part of it for years to come,” Morshed said.
Morshed, who never served to Small on council, is in his first year after winning an election in November to replace former Fourth Ward councilman William “Speedy” Marsh.
