Trenton’s Bad Bet Responds To Our Turn NJ

For Immediate Release: September 22, 2016

Group Opposing Casino Expansion Refuses To Be Distracted By Billionaires’ Temper Tantrums 

Newark, NJ – Today, Trenton’s Bad Bet responded to a statement issued by Our Turn NJ:

“Trenton’s Bad Bet will not be distracted by billionaire developers throwing temper tantrums because they don’t get what they want. The casino expansion referendum otherwise known as Question One will hurt New Jersey families costing the state tens of thousands of jobs and billions in economic losses,” said Bill Cortese, executive director for Trenton’s Bad Bet.  “Trenton politicians need to focus on doing their jobs starting with addressing the bankrupt transportation fund, properly funding school districts, meeting their pension obligations and addressing rising property taxes. It is past time to focus on meeting promises to New Jersey citizens instead of placating special interests with yet another bail out.”
