Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford announced today that he will seek another term in office.
Langford told WPG's Harry Hurley that he will seek another four-year term in November.
Langford, who served two terms on the city council, first won his bid for mayor in 2001, defeating Jim Whelan, who currently represents the 2nd Legislative District in the state Senate. Langford was defeated in the 2004 primary, but won a 2008 special election to fill the final year of an unexpired term. He won another full four-year term in 2009.
He is expected to be challenged in the June primary by Atlantic County Freeholder Charles Garrett and retired PBA President David Davidson Jr.
Lew Candura, the veteran chair of the Morris County Democratic Committee, will retire this year and back the organization's executive director, Chip Robinson, to serve as his successor.Read More >
