Mico will be the first out LGBTQ+ elected to serve Atlantic County!
Mico Lucide is a progressive Democrat running for County Clerk. A resident of Mays Landing, New Jersey, he grew up in Egg Harbor Township and attended Stockton University for his degree in Political Science concentrating in Pre-Law studies. He is the first member of his family to graduate with a 4-year degree.
Mico has prided himself in his commitment to connecting people with resources and ensuring that everyone has access to the halls of power to make their voices heard. He has fought for the rights of his transgender brothers, sisters, and siblings as an activist in college and his local community. During his college years, he was devoted to ensuring students at his University were engaging with their government at home, and their administration at the university to affect the changes they wanted to see.
After his mother’s stroke in 2012, he became more politically engaged. They had no health insurance, and with his mother needing to live in a nursing home, they lost the apartment they shared, leaving him struggling to get by. Stability was Mico’s only goal, and his compassion for others struggling became his guiding force. Now, with a sense of stability and empowerment in his life, he wants to do everything he can to empower others to change the things they can no longer accept.
Mico works in technical support, is the founder of Atlantic County Our Revolution, and is an active member of his community.
