Former Atlantic County Freeholder Seth Grossman did not completely rule out a run at Atlantic City’s Mayorship.
“It seems very unlikely, but no,” Grossman said when asked if he’d closed the door on seeking the city’s mayoral seat next year. “I’m not actively thinking about it right now.”
Atlantic City Mayor Frank Gilliam resigned earlier Thursday after pleading guilty to wire fraud.
Gilliam stole $87,000 from a youth basketball league he founded and used the money on personal expenses.
Council President Marty Small is expected to succeed Gilliam as the city’s mayor.
Grossman, a former Atlantic City Councilman, mounted an unsuccessful congressional bid last year.
