An “incident” has occurred on the streets of Atlantic City.

Depending on who you talk to, either Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small exercised great restraint after being verbally harassed and physically pushed.

Or, others say that it was Small who “threatened the life of Craig Callaway.”

Atlantic City Democratic candidate for Mayor of Atlantic City, Tom Foley has issued the following public statement.

”I, like many Atlantic City residents, was shocked by the video of Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small apparently threatening the life of Craig Callaway after Mr. Callaway accused Mayor Small of being a child molester protector, and viciously knocking a cell phone out of the hands of an individual who was recording him,” said Foley.

”In both instances, Mayor Small apparently retaliated against these individuals for exercising their First Amendment rights.”

“Mayor Small’s actions and statements captured on the video are alarming and unseemly for someone who holds public office.”

”Mayor Small has given the people of Atlantic City yet another reason why he is not qualified to lead them as their mayor and why he should not be reelected,” concluded Foley.

Tom Foley will be our guest tomorrow (Wednesday, May 5, 2021) from 8:05 a.m. to 8:25 a.m. on “Hurley in the Morning,” on WPG Talk Radio 95.5 and the WPG Talk Radio smartphone app.

I’m inviting Mayor Small to appear tomorrow , either during the 7:00 a.m. hour, or, from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.

I have watched a video that was provided to me regarding this incident.

It does show Mayor Small knock a cell phone out of a man’s hand, who was filming Small. The cell phone drops to the ground and the man lunges toward Small and he pushes Small.

Small turns and walks away. And, the video continues with Small and Craig Callaway verbally sparing back snd forth ... with Callaway repeatedly calling Small a “child molester protector.”

I’m presently seeking permission from the videographer to publish the video.

For now, I have described it both accurately and objectively.

This story will be updated later today.

NOTE: I have spoken with Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small. He will have no public comment regarding this matter.
