Is anybody here going?


This has to be the first time a president has ever visited Wildwood.


It's sort of a big deal.

While South Jersey is traditionally more Republican than Democrat, a lot of small contractors from South Jersey were bankrupted by Trump when he built his casinos. A lot of the farmers down there are contracted to Progresso, so may not have been hurt as badly as Midwestern farmers. It's a crapshoot. It's winter at the shore.

'A lot of small contractors'? How many is that?


We had to book a room in Rio Grande.


I'm hearing we may have trouble getting in because there's going to be so many people there.

I heard about the contractors in 1989 from a contractor. He used both several and a lot when he described what went down. He spoke of friends of his and said that there were more who he didn't know. I can't give you a number. I didn't ask for a specific number.

I remember reading about that.

I saw Ronald Reagan many years ago in Wilkes-Barre, PA, so I'm done.

Maybe they should have done a better job and they would have been paid?


That sort of thing is would have been handled by managers, not DJT.


Either way, that isn't going to make of break the rally.

Casinos in Nj were a fail since the word GO.


Sweeney back bill may eliminate independent contractors


headlines......
Millions of tax dollars lost in Sandy contractor fraud


TRENTON, N.J. — More than 200 people have been charged in New Jersey with $11 million worth of fraud related to Hurricane Sandy, and the list continues to grow five years after the storm.


Manahawkin contractor sued by state after Sandy


Contractor Fraud Runs Rampant in Hurricane Sandy-Hit Areas


'Hammonton world's blueberry capital of the world', may have an issue with federal regs and pollinators. Contractors are a whole other story having a well earned reputation for fraud in SJ.


Trump rally should be over the top as seen in other states. Though the sanctuary state of NJ is solid dem, the trump rally will be a shocker for the media and dem hate and fear mongers. Considering only 18% of voters elected murphy. the registered non voters will show up, we can only hope they vote in November.


Wake up NJ voters.

The contractor who told me said that this was only done with small contractors because most of them could not afford to be tied up in legal cases. It wasn't work quality. Keeping in mind that I was told this in 1989, so there was nothing political about it.
