Just over the bridge from Brigantine, Ron Jaworski was in Atlantic City this weekend for the popular Maxwell awards ceremony taking place at the Tropicana Casino Hotel.
Chuck Betson from WOND 1400 am Radio spent a few minutes with JAWS talking AC, the Philadelphia Soul, online sports betting, and of course…..the embarrassing Brigantine Golf Links debacle.
Listen to this short interview and hear how passionate Jaworski is about South Jersey and Atlantic City. Caution: you may want to blow a gasket after listening to this. Especially after our Brigantine Mayor and his side-kick; Councilman Andy Simpson took a massive dump on this guy just last week….
While Brigantine disrespects those who want to help……AC Mayor; Don Guardian, as well as the CRDA, have embraced the man with quite a distinguished background: Eagle’s Superbowl quarterback, ESPN analyst, golf course owner & management expert, Philadelphia Soul football team owner….and all around honorable, smart, and fun guy. But in Brigantine, we do things different here. We sometimes treat good people…..badly. We even chase some of them away.
Local Brigantine Realtor: we support city government and a public work force that is chasing out business, lowering property values, hiring more fire-fighters,…….and pushing away rare opportunities that only come around every so often.
At the recent Brigantine City Council meeting, Mayor Guenther and Councilman / liquor store icon; Andy Simpson, took turns at smearing Ron Jaworski’s impeccable character & track record. When these two elected officials got tired, financial wizard; Steve Cordasco, stepped in and used words like ‘fleece’ and ‘pyramid’ when discussing Jaworski.
Local Brigantine Real Estate agents were quietly seething but keeping their mouths shut out of fear of reprisals as they witnessed the dumping on Jaws. One Real Estate agent who wished to keep anonymous said: ‘Jaworski in Brigantine could bump property values up almost over night, but we were told to stay silent on the issue”.
Frustrated members of the Brigantine Chamber of Commerce were also astonished as their last best hope for a retail rebound was degraded & scoffed at for all the world to see & hear. On the other hand, Brigantine Chamber leadership lead by Real Estate exec Mike Brennan supported the wrong side of this debate and posted this on the Chamber FB page…..( and you wonder why Brigantine is losing so many businesses?)
