Marty Small

Mayor, City of Atlantic City

Marty Small

Marty Small has been mayor of Atlantic City for almost one year, when he was selected by city council to fill the vacancy created when the previous mayor, Frank Gilliam resigned after being convicted of corruption while in office. Small won the Democrat nomination for mayor in the primary and now faces a nominal Republican opponent in November’s general election. During his term, he has worked with city council to keep property taxes down, grappled with the Covid 19 shutdown and dealt with the BLM protests where he has kept his city violence free after the first unfortunate incident in May. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros in the Mayor’s conference room in the Atlantic City city hall in September.

Roger Gros is publisher of Global Gaming Business, the industry's leading gaming trade publication, and all its related publications. Prior to joining Global Gaming Business, Gros was president of Inlet Communications, an independent consulting firm. He was vice president of Casino Journal Publishing Group from 1984-2000, and held virtually every editorial title during his tenure. Gros was editor of Casino Journal, the National Gaming Summary and the Atlantic City Insider, and was the founding editor of Casino Player magazine. He was a co-founder of the American Gaming Summit and the Southern Gaming Summit conferences and trade shows. He is the author of the best-selling book, How to Win at Casino Gambling (Carlton Books, 1995), now in its fourth edition. Gros was named "Businessman of the Year" for 1998 by the Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce, and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Gaming Association in 2012.
