Today, Trenton’s Bad Bet issued the following statements:
“We are glad to see the overwhelming support across New Jersey opposing casino expansion. We attribute our success to a broad coalition of community leaders, unions, small businesses and residents who are convinced that North Jersey casinos would be a detriment to the entire state,” said Bill Cortese, executive director of Trenton’s Bad Bet.
“Today’s vote is an important step for Atlantic City’s return to becoming a world class resort. On behalf of the 30,000 employees and their families that rely on the Atlantic City casino industry, we are gratified by the overwhelming defeat of this initiative,” said Morris Bailey, owner, Resorts Hotel Casino.
