Gov. Christie in Ocean City: I can't force someone to continue to lose money

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Chris Christie's summit on Atlantic City's future may not take place until Sept. 8, but that doesn't mean the state isn't working on a solution daily.

That's what Christie told a concerned casino worker who said she and her colleagues will lose their jobs prior to that summit, reports.

Cindy Pemberton, a longtime employee at the Showboat, posed her problem to the governor during his appearance at the Music Pier in Ocean City on Thursday.

That appearance followed a pair of protests at a fundraiser for U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo and outside his town hall in Ocean City, which was held as part of his “No Pain, No Gain” tour of the Jersey Shore.

Christie intended to deliver his message about pension and benefits reform.

Christie has promised to reveal a proposal that would help fix the state's economic situation, which he said may be headed for bankruptcy without reform.
