Mayor's Message

In November, a ballot question will allow New Jersey voters the opportunity to decide whether or not gambling should be permitted outside of Atlantic City. Of course, as with all things coming out of Trenton, it’s really not that simple. First, and this may come as a big shock to our elected officials in Trenton, gambling is already permitted outside of Atlantic City. Neighboring states like New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Delaware all have legalized gambling venues. Second, the ballot initiative only allows for gambling SO LONG AS IT TAKES PLACE 72 MILES (as the crow flies) FROM ATLANTIC CITY. Guess how far Monmouth Park is from Atlantic City? About 70 miles. That’s right, the legislation might as well read "gambling shall be legal outside of Atlantic City except for Monmouth Park" because that is the obvious intent. Third, the proposed legislation only allows for two casinos to be built and those casinos have to be built in two different counties, neither of which is named. Notwithstanding the fact that neither county is named, news articles have already confirmed that both Jersey City (Hudson) and East Rutherford (Bergen) are the proposed and favored casino sites. By the way, Jersey City and East Rutherford are only 13 miles apart!
