An assembly push to move the annual Chamber of Commerce train trip destination to Atlantic City seems to have legs.
Republican Assemblymen Vince Poilistina and John Amodeo last year introduced a resolution urging the chamber to move the trip. According to the two lawmakers, it now has the backing of 24 members from both sides of the aisle.
“This switch would help our local and state economies and would also allow more people to attend and interact with the state’s business leaders and government officials in one setting,” Amodeo said. “Convincing the chamber to hold this traditional event in Atlantic City would be a strong message that we’re all committed to the future of Atlantic City and New Jersey’s economy.”
This week Senate President Steve Sweeney also voiced his support for the move.
After witnessing the booze flowing at the bar Thursday night, we can’t help but look forward to the addition of gambling to the mix. On a positive note, many towns’ mayors are looking forward to the opportunity to balance their budgets with one spin of the roulette wheel.
