Another high ranking lawmaker is sounding off on Revel. Senate President Steve Sweeney issued a statement:
“This is certainly disappointing, but it is not unexpected. Management at Revel has made mistakes since day 1. I informed and asked Division of Gaming Enforcement Director David Rebuck to look into these issues on more than one occasion. Those concerns were apparently ignored. In the meantime, everyone else saw Revel’s problems and told them they had to change. I guess this is their idea of change.
“The bottom line is that we have to make Revel work. It is too important to Atlantic City and the surrounding area not to see it turn around. Whether that turnaround happens through this bankruptcy filing, new management, or both, remains to be seen. But something has to change.”
