OUR Atlantic City has always provided a family friendly environment. With our beaches, attractions and shopping corridors, we will implement fresh, new ideas as part of our planning to help A.C. thrive. Our Universities and Gas Industry’s are opening their doors in our community, which means our markets are expanding to broaden our appeal for new business and redevelopment opportunities.
OUR Atlantic City tax system has placed many residents at risk. Tax payers are burdened with some of the highest taxes in the State. Currently, casinos have the opportunity to lock in their taxes for ten years, while residence and small businesses suffer from increased taxes. We want to fix issues like these with a clear examination of the problem and a focus on responsible solutions.
OUR Atlantic City employment has declined in recent years. However, with promising future development in A.C., we need to assure every opportunity for employment is available to our communities. We will work with trade unions and major companies to guarantee job placement for all.
Frank M Gilliam, Jr
Frank's story is an Atlantic City story. Like many with a Love for all that is AC, he is a product of her people, neighborhoods, schools, hopes and promise. He is a native son and 1988 graduate of Atlantic City High School. With a loving wife, Shawna, and wonderful children by his side, Frank is ready to be Atlantic City's next Mayor. With your support and Frank's tireless work, you will finally have a Mayor that restores the power of its people, delivers the change so desperately needed, and reclaims AC's place as the "World's Playground". Frank is a smart fighter standing for People, Opportunity, Tax Relief, Growth, Development, Education, the Environment and a Residential Renaissance attracting new residents to the City. Elected and re-elected Citywide as Councilman-At-Large during the last 8 years, Frank already possesses the experience, dedication, and skills to hit the ground running.
Frank's tenure on the Council came as a natural evolution of service to people of all walks of life, colors, creeds and means. After graduating from Stockton University with a Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice, he earned his Masters in Social Work ("MSW") from the University of San Francisco. Stockton has since honored Frank bestowing upon him its Professional Achievement award.
His service on Council has always been rooted in caring about people, improving lives, solving the City's problems, fostering economic development and protecting its environment. Frank always stands with the diverse mixture of people and businesses that is AC, its rich and poor, big and small, that will grow the City together. His involvement is as diverse as expanding residential opportunities for Senior Citizens at the new RPM assisted living facility to his support of the rising Gateway Project attracting Stockton University and the South Jersey Gas headquarters. As a leader on our environment, particularly given its vital relationship with the City's renowned beaches and bay, Frank has been a motivating Board Member of the AC Green Team, piloted AC's "Green" progressivism, and established AC's "Go Green" goals. Most recently, he sponsored the City's passage of the nationally-acclaimed Helium balloon release ban, garnering the PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) Compassionate City Award.
Frank knows our youth are tomorrow's promise. Academics to sports, he has been there for them. He currently serves as the leader of Atlantic City's non-profit, Connecting the Dots, enriching youth through education, tutoring, life skills development, college preparation and financial aid seminars. For over 20 years, he has volunteered as a Basketball Coach and founded the Atlantic City Starz Basketball Club prioritizing their game alongside their academics. Youth are the reason he remains a Mentor in the Police Athletic League ("PAL") of Atlantic City and a perennial Volunteer for the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City. So, at a time when our City's children need it the most, Frank will be the Mayor that restores their desperately needed Recreational opportunities.
