Ex-football star will seek Atlantic City council seat

Marvin Burroughs, once the quarterback of the Villanova University football team and now an elementary school teacher, says he will run for a city council seat in Atlantic City.

“When I finished college, I made a choice to return home, to a place that has given me so much. Each day in my classroom I see hope, I see opportunity,” Burroughs said. “As a councilperson, I look forward to working with leaders across the city to ensure that the promises of our future here in Atlantic City remain bright”.

Burroughs is seeking the 3rd ward seat currently held by first-term councilman Kaleem Shabazz.

“When I left for Villanova, I had such a wonderful opportunity to broaden my horizons and forge lifetime relationships,” said Burroughs.  “On the football field, I was in a position to lead, and I take those skills with me each day into my classroom. As a councilperson, I’ll leverage those same skills and relationships to open doors for all residents of Atlantic City.”
