Guenther & Risley Statement on Pending Atlantic City Tax Increases

Phil Guenther and John Reisley for New Jersey State Assembly

“For years now Mazzeo has bragged about being the architect of the PILOT legislation which gave a sweetheart deal to Atlantic City casinos by removing them from the tax rolls and exempting them from paying property taxes for a decade. It was clear from day one that as a result of Mazzeo’s ill conceived PILOT proposal, that was forced on Atlantic County by the Democrat majority in Trenton, the hardworking residents of Atlantic City would bear the full brunt of any tax increases in the city which has now become a reality. As your Assemblymen, one of our first priorities will be to introduce legislation to fix the mess Mazzeo’s PILOT has created.”
