ATLANTIC CITY - The No North Jersey Casinos Coalition, with support from the Greater Atlantic City Chamber, will host a get out the vote rally from 10:30 a.m. to noon Thursday, Oct. 27 at Kennedy Plaza on the Atlantic City Boardwalk.
The rally is designed to galvanize opposition to the Nov. 8 referendum that asks voters to allow two casinos to be built in northern New Jersey.
Among the guest speakers will be Greater Atlantic City Chamber President Joe Kelly, Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian, Resorts Atlantic City Casino Hotel President and CEO Mark Giannantonio, Local 54 President Bob McDevitt, Trenton’s Bad Bet Executive Director Bill Cortese, and Debra DiLorenzo, president and CEO of the Southern New Jersey Chamber of Commerce. DiLorenzo is also chairwoman of the No North Jersey Casinos Coalition.
“There is growing opposition to this fundamentally flawed and thoroughly misguided ballot measure, which, if approved, would have a devastating effect on the Atlantic City region, South Jersey and the state,” Kelly said. “This rally is an opportunity to remind stakeholders how critically important it is to vote no on ballot question No. 1 on Nov. 8, and to actively engage their friends, neighbors and business colleagues to do the same."
There rally is free and participants are encouraged to register on-line at www.acchamber.com.
Free parking is available at Boardwalk Hall. Kennedy Plaza is located directly across from Boardwalk Hall between Mississippi and Florida avenues.
