Ad campaign urges ‘yes’ vote for North Jersey casinos

As Atlantic City struggles to stay afloat in South Jersey, there's a new push to bring casinos to North Jersey in the form of an ad campaign.



"New York and Pennsylvania have stolen billions of our gaming revenue...robbing us of dollars to fund programs like Meals on Wheels and the property tax freeze," says the campaign.



The campaign is being backed by former Reebok chairman Paul Fireman and Meadowlands Racetrack operator Jeff Gural, who want to build the casinos in the northern part of the state.



They're urging voters to check "yes" on the statewide ballot question come November.
