Small picks Days-Chapman as reelection campaign manager

Constance "Mandy" Days-Chapman

Constance ‘Mandy’ Days-Chapman is the campaign manager for Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small’s reelection campaign in 2021.

ATLANTIC CITY — Mayor Marty Small Sr. has named educator and community organizer Constance “Mandy” Days-Chapman as manager of his reelection campaign.

“In a campaign manager you want someone who’s organized, involved in the community and understands Atlantic City politics and the players involved,” Small said in a news release Wednesday. “We have that in Mandy.”

Small is running in the June 8 Democratic primary on a ticket with at-large councilmember and Council President George Tibbitt, Bruce Weekes and Stephanie Marshall.

Days-Chapman is an assistant principal at Atlantic City High School, where Small’s wife, La’Quetta, is principal, and is an adjunct professor at Stockton University. She is an Atlantic City resident, longtime community leader and activist, and former vice president of the Atlantic City Board of Education. Prior to taking the job at Atlantic City High School, she was assistant principal at Pleasantville High School.

She ran unsuccessfully for a spot on City Council in 2019.

She also is an active member of Second Baptist Church, where she sings with the Inspirational Choral Ensemble, and serves as an Atlantic City Dolphins’ team mom.

“It is an honor to lead the campaign of Mayor Marty Small Sr.,” said Days-Chapman. “As we transition into a time of uncertainty and a new normal, it is important to have stability in the highest levels of leadership.”

She holds a bachelor’s degree in English education from South Carolina State University, a master’s degree in educational leadership and is enrolled in Stockton’s doctoral program.

Small was elected to a one-year term as mayor in a special election in November 2020 and is seeking his first four-year mayoral term.
