REPUBLICAN FREEHOLDER CANDIDATES REITERATE SUPPORT FOR BROWN’S FIVE YEAR BAN ON NORTH JERSEY CASINOS
REPUBLICAN FREEHOLDER CANDIDATES REITERATE SUPPORT
FOR BROWN’S FIVE YEAR BAN ON NORTH JERSEY CASINOS –
URGE MAZZEO TO JOIN THEM
In the wake of a sudden flip-flop on the issue of stopping North Jersey casinos, Assemblyman Vince Mazzeo announced yesterday he would no longer work in a bipartisan manner with Assemblyman Chris Brown to stop North Jersey casinos for five years.
“As Republicans, we are committed to protecting jobs in our region and nothing would be more harmful, right now, than allowing a North Jersey casino to open up, competing within our state against Atlantic City,” said Freeholder John Risley, who is running for reelection this year.
“Every credible expert has said that more gaming competition inside New Jersey would hurt Atlantic City,” said Risley’s running mate Freeholder Alex Marino. “We already approved a resolution supporting Assemblyman Brown’s resolution opposing North Jersey casinos for at least five years, and two Democrats on the Freeholder Board voted in favor of it. I guess Assemblyman Mazzeo thinks they are giving false hope too.”
“That’s why it’s so disappointing that Assemblyman Mazzeo, who only won his seat by a handful of votes in a questionable election, would vote against his district by opposing such a common-sense resolution,” said Freeholder Candidate John Carman. “If you can’t stand up for Atlantic City workers in the face of growing competition and self-interested North Jersey politicians, why even hold the office?”
ATLANTIC COUNTY REPUBLICANS RELEASE
“NO NORTH JERSEY CASINOS” BUMPER STICKER
For immediate release September 5, 2014
Contact: (609) 677-0707
The Atlantic County Republican Party delivered a clear message today when it comes to amending the state constitution to allow for casinos outside of Atlantic City: “North Jersey casinos must be stopped. They are not inevitable.”
To underscore its point, Republicans are giving away free “STOP North Jersey Casinos! Nothing is Inevitable” bumper stickers for anyone who will “like” the party’s Facebook page.
“With an oversaturation of gaming in the Northeast and the closure of several casinos in Atlantic City, now is the absolute worst time to even discuss the idea of more casinos in our state,” said Chairman Keith Davis. “This year Massachusetts voters are going to consider repealing legalized gaming, but New Jersey is going to consider adding more gaming markets? It’s pure lunacy and will only hurt the one viable gaming market we have, Atlantic City, killing state jobs and hurting state tax revenues.”
“We are tired of promises from politicians,” said Vice Chair Rosalie Baker. “No promises of future subsidies for Atlantic City based upon rosy projections from casinos that don’t exist will make up for the jobs that would be lost here. Discussing these empty promises only hurts Atlantic City’s ability to attract additional investment and potential buyers of the casinos that have recently closed. And that hurts the entire State of New Jersey.”
“Every Republican elected official in Atlantic County is opposed to the idea of more gaming competition in New Jersey,” said Davis. “It’s time for the Democrats to step up now and join us. This should be a bipartisan effort to ensure that those working in Atlantic City’s casinos now are protected. With a North Jersey casino, things here will only get worse.”
At the 2014 edition of the annual GTRL Abe Lincoln Breakfast the Galloway Township Republican League will honor Robert Iannacone as the 2014 Galloway Township Republican of the Year.
In addition to honor the Republican of the Year, the GTRL is proud to announce that the newly elected Republican mayor of Atlantic City, Mayor Don Guardian, will be our guest speaker.
