A city Republican is embarking on what he calls "a new beginning" for Atlantic City, as he announced his candidacy for mayor Tuesday evening.
Don Guardian, Executive Director of the Atlantic City Special Improvement District, is the first Republican candidate to officially announce he is running against incumbent Democratic Mayor Lorenzo Langford.
The announcement was made in front of a crowd of supporters at the Civil Rights Garden in Atlantic City, where Guardian touched on some of the things he says needs to be changed in the gaming resort.
"We've got to reduce our taxes, that's a really high priority. We have to make Atlantic City residents and tourists feel safe in their city, we've got to go beyond the crime and find out what the cause of the crime is," Guardian told an NBC40 reporter at the event.
Guardian also talked about plans to beautify the city, such as sweeping the streets and cleaning up litter.
