It appears the Atlantic County Democrats are a bunch of keyboard warriors. Maybe that’s a good thing.
A week ahead of last night’s Atlantic County Freeholder meeting the county Democrats sent an email encouraging members to “Attend the next Freeholder meeting and tell the Republicans to withdraw their support for Seth Grossman.” To encourage this they were all over social media sharing negative press reports about Grossman.
They failed! Reports are “maybe a half dozen Democrats” showed up and they said nothing. The Grossman campaign countered with about 20 supporters in attendance.
Not only did the Atlantic County Democrats fail miserably with their planned protest of Grossman, they also failed to support Democratic Freeholder Caren Fitzpatrick in her effort to change the title of “freeholder” to “commissioner.” You may recall she believes “freeholder” is a racist and misogynistic term. According to the Grossman for Congress Facebook page the motion on the issue was tabled and fellow Democrat, Freeholder Ashley Bennett called the motion a “big waste of time.”
Based on the lack of a protest it appears Seth Grossman has weathered another round of negative press.
