Armato & Mazzeo Statement on Reopening of Atlantic City Casinos

  (TRENTON) – Assemblymen John Armato and Vince Mazzeo (both D-Atlantic) released the following statement in response to Governor Phil Murphy’s announcement that casinos and indoor dining in New Jersey will be allowed to reopen July 2 at 25 percent capacity:

          “This is beyond welcome news for Atlantic City and New Jersey as a whole. For months, casino workers have struggled under the weight of mounting bills and were betrayed by an unacceptably antiquated, over-burdened and under-performing unemployment system. To hear that they can now go back to work under safe and measured conditions must be a huge relief for their families. We’re thrilled that moment has finally arrived, and just in time for Fourth of July weekend and the summer tourism season. We look forward to seeing Atlantic City safely welcome tourists to casinos and restaurants in the coming weeks.”
