Politicians are Trying to Keep Trump Plaza and Showboat Open a Little Longer
Sen. Jim Whelan along with Assemblymen Vince Mazzeo and Chris Brown are asking for the delay. The three also say companies that close a casino should not be allowed to bar a new owner from running the site as a gaming hall. The politicians want to avoid a string of shuttered casinos along the Boardwalk.
