[1]Paul Tonacci, 32, has made Atlantic City his home since 2013. He has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, has studied abroad in Madrid, Spain and Valparaiso, Chile, and is fluent in English and Spanish. He is a board member of the Hispanic Leadership Association of NJ.

[2]Tonacci opened a restaurant and liquor store in Atlantic City, and now promotes South Jersey tourism and lobbies with the Congressional Wine Caucus to increase local agri-tourism. His drive to give back to the community moves him to participate in events such as the American Cancer Society’s Bike-a-thon from Philadelphia to Atlantic City and Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Over the Edge, where he’ll rappel down the Sheraton Atlantic City to raise money for the organization.

Tonacci is ready to work with all Atlantic City residents to help reduce taxes and create better and safer communities by working directly with the city’s emergency services, including early-morning Beach Initiatives to assist homeless people and getting Narcan training to aid individuals suffering an opioid overdose. He is committed to drawing new businesses into Atlantic City to lower taxes for residents.

Tonacci is the former vice president of National Account Sales for Vinedrea Wines and the former managing partner of the Atlantic City Bottle Company and The Iron Room. He is a member of the Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce, the Metropolitan Business and Citizens Association of Atlantic City, and the SoPro Young Business and Professionals Network. Tonacci is a former guest columnist for the Press of Atlantic City and Wine Industry Network, a Lead Atlantic City Tomorrow Fellow, and one of AC Weekly’s Top 40 Under 40 in 2015.
