    Atlantic City would be allowed to defer payments into the public employee pension system and could qualify for more state education aid as part of a plan to help offset losses brought on by casino closings….So now AC will be doing exactly what Christie has been doing …skiping pension payments ,we all know how that worked out !

    does a city of 40,000 need a budget of $377 million dollars for? Where does it go? That’s insane: it appears to me it should’ve been taken over a long time ago: memo to those in- charge: we just have to stop throwing our tax dollars at these urban disasters, with little or no accountability/ oversight, or this will keep happening. More school aid: what do they to with what we all send there, to start with? Where is the State Comptroller, and possibly the attorney general’s office, when we need it? This state will absolutely never be any better, if there isn’t finally more”tough love,” when it comes to how these places are run. It’s a disgrace it has been left so long, to get to this crisis point!
