Yesterday the main paper in south Jersey reported that the mayor of Atlantic City wanted to pass over the attorneys already on the city payroll and have them hire another attorney just to handle the mayor issues - to "defend him" as the paper said in cases where he is sued (he sued the city once and won and then lost a judgment - has not yet paid back the money as ordered)
Today the paper reports that the city is considering laying off a lot of AC cops to help balance the budget! And you do not go a day without hearing a violent crime story involving AC - they need those cops and they do not need a personal solicitor for the mayor to be paid for by taxpayers!
