Citizens Committee To Recall Bob Levy Retains James
Leonard, Jr. As Attorney
The Citizens Committee to Recall Bob Levy as Mayor of
Atlantic City has retained prominent local Attorney James Leonard,
Jr. to represent their interest in a hearing later this month before
Superior Court Judge Valerie Armstrong.
"We are thrilled to have someone of Mr. Leonard's
stature and experience representing our committee against the despicable tactics
of the Bob Levy and Craig Callaway government in Atlantic City", said Charles B.
Turner, the plaintiff in the matter.
"Now the citizens will be on the same playing field as
the city, who is presently wasting tens of thousands of tax dollars in
lawyers fees to fight the citizens while they try to
wrongfully keep Bob Levy in office", said Turner.
"Bob Levy, Craig Callaway, Rosemary Adams and
Kimberly Baldwin are using the arm of government and the resources of the people
of Atlantic City for their own personal gain and advancement", said
"This is wrong and will be corrected on July 31st,
when our attorney Mr. Leonard will fully dispel this pattern of obstructive
conduct by the Levy and Callaway administration in Atlantic City who
are attempting to deprive the citizens of their basic constitutional
rights", said Turner.
"Just seven weeks ago, the vast majority of
Atlantic City Council voted in support of a Resolution in support
of the rights of the citizens of Atlantic City to pursue a Recall of Bob Levy as
Mayor of Atlantic City", said the committees Attorney James
"We intend to make a strong case before Judge
Armstrong on July 31st, where we believe that justice will be served and the
citizens will be free to circulate a lawful petition in protest of what they
believe is the present unacceptable leadership in the highest elective
office in the city", said Leonard.
"This is the American way. We are asking that they
stop the obstruction of the citizens and let the people decide at the voting
booth. That's all the citizens desire", concluded
