Atlantic City, NJ Councilman Calls For 2 Councilman To Resign
Atlantic City Councilman George Tibbitt is strenuously calling on two current members of the Atlantic City, New Jersey City Council to resign their elected positions, effective immediately.
Tibbitt is also demanding that they not attend tomorrow’s, Wednesday, March 22, 2023 City Council meeting.
The Atlantic City Council Members being brought into question are MD Hossain Morshed and Muhammad Anjum Zia.
Tibbitt’s justification for both Council Members to resign are:
Morshed has been indicted by a United States federal grand jury for various voter crimes and stealing compensation and benefits.
United States Attorney for New Jersey, Phillip Sellinger unsealed the Morshed indictment last Friday, March 17, 2023.
Tibbitt is demanding Zia’s resignation because Tibbitt has confirmed that Zia does not live in Atlantic City.
Tibbitt alleges that Zia lives in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey.
Tibbitt has publicly stated that Zia told him that he does not live in Atlantic City. Tibbitt also possesses documentation regarding a Zia real estate holding.
Tibbitt has provided us with the Egg Harbor Township address where he says that Zia lives. We are not going to print the address here at this time.
Tibbitt also intends to demand that if Morshed and Zia show up to tomorrow’s Atlantic City Council meeting, that they not be permitted to vote on any agenda measures.
”This is a very important meeting. We will likely be naming the potential developer of Bader Field when we pass a Memorandum of Understanding,” said Tibbitt.
”Morshed and Zia must not be allowed to vote, as this is a crucial moment in Atlantic City history,” said Tibbitt.
Tibbitt is concerned that should Atlantic City and the state of New Jersey fail to act soon … that DEEM Enterprises could walk away from developing in Atlantic City altogether.
Tibbitt said that “Jacksonville, Florida is the hottest market in the country at this time. We don’t to miss this opportunity to develop Bader Field.
Tibbitt also reminded us how Penn Gaming was willing to pay $ 850 million for Bader Field many years ago; before politics got in the way and killed the deal.
Tibbitt doesn’t want to see history repeat itself here.
Atlantic County Democratic Chairman Michael Suleiman is calling for Morshed to resign … but, he has not weighed in regarding Zia.
In fact, Suleiman presented Zia with a “rising star” award at this past Sunday’s Atlantic County Democratic Convention … which was met with laughter by those who claim that Zia should not hold his present Atlantic City Council seat.
Here is Suleiman’s public statement about Morshed:
"While Councilman Morshed is entitled to a fair and impartial trial, and while everyone is innocent until proven guilty, it is clear that he can no longer effectively represent the residents of Atlantic City's Fourth Ward. He needs to resign,” said Suleiman.
Both Morshed and Zia are faithfully aligned with Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small.
Not surprisingly, Small has not called for Morshed and Zia to resign.
Long-time Atlantic County Democratic Commissioner is calling for Morshed and Zia to resign.
"The time is now for Councilman Morshed to resign immediately. I want to piggy back on Councilman George Tibbitt our County Chairman Mike Suleiman and any other community leader. I think it's hypocritical that the Mayor of Atlantic City does not file suit. Councilman Morshed has violated public trust on numerous occasions and his resignation is long over due. I also support the resignation of Councilman Zia, it's obvious at this point he does not reside it Atlantic City,“ said Devlin.
