Atlantic County, New Jersey government, under the direction of Dennis Levinson has consistently delivered frugality and results when it comes to saving taxpayer dollars.

This is especially important in light of the highest, runaway inflation that America has seen in 40 years.

This has caused the Federal Reserve Board to raise interest rates 10 times since 2022.

This is where County Executive Levinson’s stewardship of Atlantic County finances comes into play.

We have learned and cam exclusively report that Atlantic County government has retained its top tier bond ratings by both Moody's Investors and Standard & Poor's Global Ratings.

What this means is that Atlantic County can borrow at lower interest rates for capital improvements and other county purchases.

Moody's Investors has given Atlantic County an Aa2 stable rating and Standard & Poor's has given an A stable rating.

"The higher the bond rating, the lower the interest rate, and the larger the savings are for our taxpayers," said Levinson. "As the public struggles with higher costs for housing, food and recreation, they can be assured that Atlantic County is working to keep more money in their pockets."

"Taxpayers may recall this year's county budget includes an overall 2.5-cent tax rate decrease," said Levinson.
