Gilliam sworn-in as AC mayor

‘We can expect progressiveness. We can expect open ideas. We can expect the question, “Why not? Why not Atlantic City?”’ Mayor Frank Gilliam Jr. said after he was sworn in Monday in City Council Chambers.

ATLANTIC CITY — Why not Atlantic City?

That is the message the new Mayor Frank Gilliam gave the city's residents when he was sworn in on New Years Day.
