Mazzeo: Action Needed Now to Help Atlantic City

(2nd LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT) – Assemblyman Vince Mazzeo (D-Atlantic) released the following statement on Monday:

“Gov. Christie appointed an Emergency Manager to provide realistic solutions to combat the budgetary problems Atlantic City is facing, but two self-imposed deadlines later all Atlantic County residents have seen is hundreds of thousands of taxpayers’ dollars wasted with no proposed solutions in sight. Mr. Lavin’s March report offered nothing new. In June – when real solutions were supposed to be presented – we saw nothing.
“The governor may mostly be in New Hampshire, but we’re still here working to bring new jobs and investment to our region to provide tax relief for our hard-working middle-class families and businesses.
“In absence of any proposal from the emergency manager, I again ask the governor to sign our tax stabilization bill package so we can make sure that Atlantic City and our region have not just a great summer season – but a future that brings Atlantic City back to the resort destination we know it can be.”
