EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP MAYOR – JAMES “SONNY” MCCULLOUGH – ENDORSES TRENTON’S BAD BET
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 6, 2016
In An Effort To Send A Clear Message To Trenton, Mayor McCullough Joins Opposition To Casino Expansion
Newark, NJ – The mayor of Egg Harbor Township, James “Sonny” McCullough, today joined the opposition to casino expansion in New Jersey by endorsing Trenton’s Bad Bet.
“Casino expansion is another scheme from Trenton politicians that would lead to the loss of tens of thousands of jobs and cause billions in economic losses,” McCullough said. “This proposed expansion into North Jersey is nothing but a sweetheart deal for special interests that would stick New Jersey residents with the bill when their casinos fail.”
Worried by the lack of transparency around the cryptic referendum being put to a vote on the November ballot, Mayor McCullough was quick to call into question any commentary coming from proponents for the expansion effort.
“Proponents of casino expansion will do and say anything to try to push through this unpopular proposal that an overwhelming number of New Jersey residents are opposed to,” McCullough went on to say. “We intend to send a clear message to Trenton and their special interests on Election Day by voting NO on Question One.”
