Message to Mayor Guardian of Atlantic City

Dear Mayor Guardian:

We thank you for speaking so highly of Tropicana and its turnaround.  I am proud to state and think no one can deny that if I hadn’t risked over $80 million when nobody else was investing, and when the property was falling apart and on the brink of closing, Tropicana wouldn’t be the property it is today with hundreds of new jobs and almost 3,000 employees.  I, like you, would like to see Atlantic City saved but to accomplish this investors need to believe they have a chance.  Today, obviously this is not the case.
