The other Atlantic City. The AC that CRDA and City Hall pretends doesn’t exist.
Sean Reardon is a candidate running for a 4th ward Council seat. Reardon is willing to show us this oft-forgotten portion of Atlantic City.
It’s not pretty. Ignored by elected officials and those holding the purse strings. (CRDA)
WATCH VIDEO. Resident Sean Reardon shares his experience inside the OTHER AC. You won’t see important stuff like this from Mayor Gilliam, Council member Small, Shabazz or Randolph.
Reardon: I’ve been losing friends during the last decade to the drug epidemic. Some call Atlantic City “the last stop in life” for these people. Millions get spent to build colleges that don’t pay taxes. Where is money to help these people and get them off the streets in the AC Tourism District? (CRDA). Watch as we check on and then interview a local woman (Lisa) who’s struggling in this wasteland the State & CRDA has enabled.
This video is just one more reason why CRDA doesn’t hold their monthly meetings at a more convenient time & location. CRDA does not want to discuss this growing epidemic of a problem.
Casinos were supposed to transform Atlantic City. The ENTIRE city, not just the Casinos. Shame on the CRDA.
With online gambling, sports betting and growing competition from neighboring states, will things get better or worse for local residents? Take a wild guess.
Do social services like OASIS, John Brooks and Salvation Army help? Sister Jeans Kitchen was shut down by CRDA, City & Casinos.
We’re leaving people on the street. The State & CRDA only care about one thing….pulling cash out of the city.
TIME TO CLEAN HOUSE? Most on AC City Council could care less. Most should NOT be re-elected. But many will vote these do-nothings back in…..and then wonder why things are getting worse.
Rampant prostitution. Feeding their addiction. Sex trafficking; ‘you would be surprised’ says Lisa, a user looking for help.
