Message: Pretend to do something.
Governor Chris Christie has announced that he will convene a bipartisan summit of state and local leaders to address the future of Atlantic City and kick off a working group to address the challenges confronting Atlantic City and its changing landscape.

The idea that the economic health of Atlantic City is especially important to New Jersey is silly. It's gotten so much focus from politicians over the years. Obviously the economic health of AC matters to the people who are going to lose their jobs, etc. I'm not minimizing that. It's just that New Jersey's a big place. AC isn't that big.
