Ad Highlights Trenton’s Lack Of Transparency & Broken Promises To Seniors, Disabled

Newark, NJ – Trenton’s Bad Bet today launched a new radio ad highlighting Trenton’s attempts to keep New Jersey residents in the dark about key details surrounding the proposed casino expansion ballot question.

The ad speaks to Trenton politicians’ efforts to obscure important facts on casino expansion in North Jersey, such as, where the casinos would be built and what the established tax rates would be. The ad also highlights the negative impact casino expansion would have on the state’s economy citing an independent study showing significant economic and job losses.

Trenton politicians and rich special interests pushing gambling expansion are making false promises and refusing to give voters details.

Trenton won’t tell us where the new casinos will be located.

And the politicians continue to duck and dodge on what the tax rates will be.

It’s just another bait-and-switch scam.

Hundreds of millions in new revenue? Not even close.

A local television station said the new casinos would barely generate enough money to meet its commitment to Atlantic City and that means more broken promises to our seniors and the disabled.

The truth is these new casinos would be an economic disaster.

An independent study says North Jersey casinos could cause two billion of economic pain and thirty thousand lost jobs.

More broken promises, this time to our seniors and the disabled.

North Jersey casinos are another bad Trenton deal.

Vote No on Question One.
