Bob Levy is running a series of
television campaign commercials, wherein through Philadelphia based spokesmen,
he claims he will fight Atlantic City's drug problems right on the
The only problem with this latest
Levy stunt is; Levy has no record of even combating drug problems within
his own Department, as Chief of the Beach Patrol.
Once again, reality crashes in with
another false Bob Levy claim. The list continues to mount, Bob Levy claimed he
was "kicked out of ACHS" for inter-racial dating. We now know this, and
Levy was forced to admit that this was not true.
Levy suggests in television ads that he
was someone who tried to help the late star athlete from AC Jamar Reynolds. The

But now, Levy says he is going to fight
drug problems himself right on the streets of Atlantic City. Once again, the
reality and Levy's real record on dealing with drug problems within his own
Department reveal otherwise.

these individuals were OK to protect your children, the citizens and visitors of
Atlantic City, but thank goodness they would not be representing us out of town
in boat and swimming races. After all, this is the real important stuff to Bob
Levy. It must be, because that was his only real concern he had....boat
races! So much for the bathing safety of your children.
Why should anyone believe that Bob Levy
would be tough on drug problems on the streets of Atlantic City, when he was not
even tough with drug problems that occurred directly in his own
