“Having served with Mayor Small for 15 years on city council, I have seen his growth and leadership rise in all aspects of city business,” Marsh said in a full-throated endorsement statement released by the Small campaign.
“His passion for youth services and senior citizen outreach has always been extraordinary. Mayor Small has the leadership, commitment and energy that our city needs to keep moving forward. Mayor Small is Atlantic City’s lifeline to a brighter, prosperous future,” Marsh added.
Sumter called Small a “devoted leader” who has a passion for good government.
“Mayor Small elevates the people and challenges businesses to work as partners with the community,” Sumter said. “Leadership matters and trust in good leaders like Mayor Small to recovery and growth for communities.”
