Former Atlantic City Council President Craig Callaway knew Hutchinson very well and shared at the time of his passing:

“Mr. Dwight Hutchinson was a very quiet a very decent and dignified human being who’s life ended in very tragic way on the very unsafe and vicious streets of this very small town. It’s sad mainly because it should not be this way and people’s lives should not end this way in this little town and for certain no day in Atlantic City is great when these realities of Mr. Hutchinson happen far too often!” said Callaway.
