Atlantic Cape Community College President Peter Mora has agreed not to accept a raise for the third year in a row.

A resolution read by trustee Eric Reynolds and approved Tuesday night by the college’s Board of Trustees said that the Board Presidential Evaluation Committee found Mora’s overall performance during the 2011-12 year to be excellent.
