EGG HARBOR CITY — Local diversity and equal opportunity veteran Joyce Pratt of Galloway Township, will be the Democratic representative in the race for Atlantic County Executive after the passing of Margaret “Peggy” Capone earlier this month.  

Capone, a member of the Greater Egg Harbor Regional School District school board, was challenging Atlantic County Executive incumbent Dennis Levinson for his seat in November when she died from an illness.  

“The best way to honor Peggy’s legacy is to continue her campaign,” Pratt said in a statement from the Democratic Party last week. “I’m honored that I can do a small part in carrying her torch, and I look forward to doing my part to ensure that all of our Democratic candidates have the greatest likelihood of success.”  

Pratt is a small businesswoman, the owner and operator of two businesses: T&J Associates and the Oneal Group. At T&J Associates, Pratt provides workplace training and investigations on behavioral issues to include equal employment opportunity, provide affirmative action for employees, conduct mediation meetings, and interact with the government for minority and female equity. At Oneal Group, Pratt assists nonprofits and businesses with grant writing and communications.  

Pratt is a graduate of Stockton University and holds various educational certificates. She volunteers with her church and is a member of the Cape Atlantic District United Methodist Women.   

She served as secretary of the American Association for Access, Equity and Diversity. Prior to opening her company, Pratt served as Diversity & Equal Opportunity Affairs Representative and later Manager for Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City for more than 15 years.  

She worked as a supervisor of grant storage and retrieval for the Ford Foundation in New York City for 10+ years. She had been working as a temporary EO/AA investigator for New Jersey Transit, Newark headquarters.
