As a casino employee, I stood with Chris Brown on the boardwalk in front of Showboat nearly three years ago when he drew a line in the sand and promised to fight North Jersey casinos.

Hard Rock Casino’s purchase of the Taj Mahal is a direct result of the actions Brown took since that day on the boardwalk. Remember before the election, Hard Rock announced it was going to open a casino/hotel in the Meadowlands. Then the referendum on North Jersey casinos lost.

Three thousand jobs have been saved thanks to Chris Brown’s early and relentless effort that defeated the North Jersey casinos.
