The Press of Atlantic City has reported that Ten has hired former Taj executives to run their resort which is on target for an opening in the first quarter of 2017. It will be interesting g to see if the place does open, how it will do without all the debt the former Revel had and less costly heat and electric now that they own their own power plant. I can't imagine it will be successful if the North Jersey casino vote is passed, though it looks like it will be defeated. Even if that vote goes down they will have to be more creative than the former owners to bring in gamblers and turn a profit.

The owner is not a fan of gambling, or so he says. He has claimed his focus will not be on the casino.

Hopefully someone will convince him otherwise.

Per the above photo, Meadowland Race Track asks Jersey Guys to vote YES on Question#1 to OK a casino in Meadowland.

I think it's already a done deal.

Some racing fans reported that a group of electricians, carpenters, and other contractors are currently working to get the Meadowland ready.

The owner will not waste money on contractors if he doesn't get a green light/reasonable assurance from Trenton, right guys?
I'm OK with Corps which pick and choose clienteles. Both insurance companies and casinos have the right to pick and choose customers. They may keep profitable ones and kicked out the rest. But, I'm not OK with a casino supervisor who says counting cards... is like stealing food from a buffet (a foodlifting offense), or video-taping a movie in a cinema (a piracy offense).

It's been widely reported that the pro-North Jersey casino group has abandoned its promotional efforts to "vote yes", in effect conceding defeat this time around.

We continue to see daily "vote no" TV spots in the NY market, bankrolled by gaming interests in NYC & PA, but haven't seen any "vote yes" media buys of any kind in several weeks.

The polls indicate the vote could be 70% or greater against expansion.

I don't blame the people for voting no if pertinent details aren't clear on the ballot.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!

I live in Northern NJ, about 15 miles from the Meadowlands. For what it's worth, I'm kinda on the fence on this. I'd love having a casino so close, while I also fear that I'd become a total degen.

I'm voting No for a different reason.

The resolution specifies that the new casinos must be at least 72 miles from Atlantic City. It seems to me that if the Meadowlands Racetrack should be a contender for a casino, then Monmouth Racetrack should also be a contender. After all, both already are gambling facilities. Except Monmouth is only 69 miles from AC. That smells like political bullshit to me, so I vote NO.

I kinda doubt this.

In 2013, a new grandstand on the other side of the track was built, and opened in November. The old grandstand, a stone's throw from MetLife Stadium, was used in some capacity during the SuperBowl. It still stands. As far as I know, it's unused.

It wouldn't take much to throw up a coat of paint and some carpeting to get this facility ready for use as a temporary location while the fancy casino is being built. But why put any effort or money into it before the resolution passes? Besides, even if it passes, there's still a lot of time consuming red tape to take care of.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.
