Former Councilman Is New Atlantic City Education Union President
Former Atlantic City Councilman Tim Mancuso last served in public office on December 31, 2015.
Mancuso has set the record for longevity in the Atlantic City Mayor-Council form of government. He won a special election for Atlantic City’s 6th Ward Council seat in 1991 versus Seth Grossman.
Through focused, hard work, Mancuso doubled the voter turnout from just under 1,000 total votes cast in the previous election cycle to almost 2,000 total votes cast in the special election.
Mancuso defeated Grossman by 174 votes.
Mancuso followed up on his initial success, by winning 6 consecutive four-year terms and holding the seat for a record 25 years, unmatched to this day.
Mancuso attended his last Atlantic City Council meeting on December 23, 2015.
Not one for giving speeches, Mancuso kept it short and sweet.
Yesterday, Tuesday, April 5, 2022, Mancuso was on the ballot for the first time since retiring from the Atlantic City Council six years ago.
Mancuso did, what he usually does and won the election for President of The Atlantic City Education Association (ACEA).
Here are the results:
With his victory, Mancuso has won a two-year term as ACEA President.
Mancuso defeated the incumbent ACEA Senior Vice President Alphonso Harrell.
Long-time (20 years) Atlantic City Board of Education Member John Devlin was not the least bit surprised by Mancuso’s victory yesterday, saying:
“Tim Mancuso is a proven leader and has a long history of working with people and standing up for what’s right. He has an excellent relationship not only with teachers but also the Board of Education, Administration and staff,” said Devlin.
Devlin continued, “Tim has been a teacher for decades and knows what the issues that the teachers and staff face in the future. The teachers and staff are very lucky to have him and I look forward to working with him over the next few years.”
We caught up with Mancuso last night who once again kept his remarks brief, saying:
“We have a good team; the hard work begins now and it’s time to get to work,” said Mancuso, “I want to thank everyone for their support.”
