 Association With More Than 200 New Jersey Member Companies Cites Concern About Special Interest Groups Stifling Free Enterprise

Newark, NJ – Today, Dominick Mondi, president of Associated Builders and Contractors, a trade association with more than 200 member companies in New Jersey, gave his support to Trenton’s Bad Bet in opposition to the referendum that aims to expand casino gaming into North Jersey.

“This proposal for casino expansion into only a select area of northern New Jersey is politics at its worst and is not in the spirit of free enterprise promoted by our association,” said Dominick Mondi. “ABC supports Trenton’s Bad Bet. We stand beside them as they stand up to special interests by opposing casino expansion in New Jersey, and we will be joining them in voting no this November.”

“We are excited to get the endorsement from ABC and expect many other associations to follow suit,” said Bill Cortese, executive director of Trenton’s Bad Bet. “New Jersey trade associations can see this referendum for what it is, a blatant attempt by Trenton to cater to special interest groups and political donors.”

 Elected officials in Trenton have repeatedly broken their promises, at the expense of New Jersey residents. This referendum is clearly just another bad deal designed to help the special interests and harm taxpayers.
