Mico Lucide

Atlantic County Clerk, NJ

Mico is a lifelong Atlantic County resident running to serve as County Clerk. Mico is a progressive Democrat who believes the core of being progressive means having our government be representative of, and responsive to, our communities. He grew up working poor with divorced parents. He is proudly the first member of his family to graduate with a 4-year degree. He pushed past the struggles of poverty to become more than was expected of him. When his mother suffered a severe stroke in 2012 with no health insurance, he was forced to navigate difficult-to-find resources to stay afloat on his own. This experience led him to commit that if nothing else in his life, he would be a resource for people.

He wants to reflect that mission in the County Clerk's office. The County Clerk is uniquely positioned to be a central civic resource for voters. He wants to bring voting resources out into the community, making it easier for people to register, vote, and understand the voting process from start to finish. He wants to increase transparency, accessibility, and accountability in our government by ensure our ballot is fair, makes sense, and is easy to read for all voters. He is committed to modernizing the Clerk's Office and making it an engaged part of our Atlantic County community.
