Former Mayor of Brigantine, Phil Guenther wants to be a NJ Assemblyman. Opponents cite Guenther’s poor track record of fiscal management as one major hurdle he’ll have to overcome.
As supervisor of ACIT, Guenther is facing accusations that he’s in conflict with his full time, school job. Much like former Congressman Frank Lobiondo, Guenther sees no reason for term limits. With less than 25% of Brigantine homeowners able to vote, it’s been easy for Guenther to remain in control of Brigantine.

Jaworski is now bringing arena football to Boardwalk Hall, something that could tie-in nicely to legal sports betting in NJ.

AC Rail Line still shut down. Mazzeo and Armato are demanding answers from Trenton.
Ocean Resort is up for sale again. Marketing of this awesome property was hampered by confusing, often nonexistent advertising. Observers say many exec hires are so-called re-treads. These are key positions filled by the same names and faces, that came from other failing operations.
