Casino Gaming Rally Draws Business, Union & Political Leadership

The Meadowlands Regional Chamber hosted a rally at its Rutherford headquarters on Friday, June 3 to formally cast support for a statewide referendum on casino gaming in North Jersey, which is set to be on the ballot in November. The rally drew more than 100 business leaders, labor union officials, politicians and union workers. Senate President Stephen Sweeney, D-Gloucester, was joined by by state Senators from Bergen County, Paul Sarlo, Loretta Weinberg and Bob Gordon—all voicing support for the referendum.

Here is some additional news coverage from the event:
