Monmouth Park adviser Dennis Drazin says the decision not to allow a casino there and a shortage of horses in the Mid-Atlantic region is hurting the track, which is hosting a 57-day meet this year with live racing held on weekends and holidays. The track held a similar 58-day meet last year.
There was $7,752,605 bet on races at Monmouth Park from bettors across the country this year. The tracks in the Mid-Atlantic region need to figure out a way to share the horse colony.”
With Monmouth Park getting around 20 cents on every dollar wagered on-site, that means the track saw about $149,000 less in revenue this year.
The Asbury Park Press reports (http://on.app.com/280cqLk) that attendance and wagering were down big at the Oceanport racetrack over the three-day holiday weekend compared to last year.. But on-track handle fell to $1,519,687 this season, a decrease of 32.8 percent.
Sports betting also has been strongly opposed by the four major professional sports leagues and the NCAA, who feel it would damage the integrity of the games and lead to a higher incidence of game-fixing.
Monmouth Park also has been very involved in efforts to bring legal sports betting to New Jersey. But the state’s efforts have been stymied by a 1992 federal law that restricted sports betting to Nevada, the only state to allow betting on individual games, and three others that had approved limited multigame parlay pools.
“There’s a horse shortage; all tracks are suffering the same things we are right now,” Drazin said. That’s down from more than $15 million last year.
Monmouth Park held live racing from Saturday through Monday and again hosted the Jersey Shore Food Truck Festival this year, but attendance was down to approximately 42,000. (AP) — It was a rough Memorial Day weekend for Monmouth Park.
Bettors wagered $2,264,176 at the track last year. Last year, attendance was more than 60,000.
Attendance and betting have fallen at New Jersey’s racetracks in recent years, and many officials and some lawmakers have strongly supported calls to add casinos and other expanded gambling opportunities.

The exact meaning of the term misdemeanors became the subject of debate while President Clinton held office. He is guarded by the plaintive howls of his peers, whose votes a while back gave them, as members of either the House or Senate, raises of $4,700 and $5,300, while voting against Social Security cost of living raise in both 2010 and 2012. Members of Congress waste millions, if not billions, of tax dollars every fiscal year. The offended audience made it glaringly clear, nearly without controversy, and stressed the need to enforce significant actions to remove him and other similar offenders from office.
At a time when America is floundering in a financial quagmire, one brought on by intellectual cheaters of the fiscal markets, we should rely on leaders to stand tall, ask intelligent questions, and not waste our tax dollars.
It’s time to close the door on wasting tax payer dollars on like inquiries, investigations, and summaries.

The House also recently entered into an agreement with a comedian to the tune of $120,000, so he could perform his routine for them. It’s time to put a halt to unwarranted waste of our tax dollars by making it a punishable offense.
Inept members of Congress are leaving an appalling blemish upon America. Such is not the case. Some felt that the act of perjury, a federal crime, was an impeachable act. The Representative in this case wasted tax dollars because of his stupidity, taking time away from real business, educated investigation, examination, and analysis.
We, the American public, however, won’t ever see such a process enacted. The rules guarding Senators and Representatives alike should be changed. Congressional inquiries or spending activities that irreverently waste tax payer dollars should be career-enders for those who partake is such activity. While the House may have roared with laughter, the view from the street is quite different. The political leadership of our nation should take note of the collective consternation of the American public, as the displeasure with American politics is clear, as evident with the accompanying video from one southern Congressman.
This professional politician, an obviously inaniloquent, uneducated idiot, one placed into office by maladroit American voters, is but one prime example of the money wasted by an office meant to serve the American people.
Impeachment proceedings may be commenced by a member of the House of Representatives on their own initiative, but you can bet members of the House would never elect to take action or remove a member of their own house from office. The subject debated as to what exactly entailed levels of high crimes and misdemeanors. It wasn’t until the public outcry against the raises was heard loud and clear did they pass legislation to halt the increases.
To some, the questioning process of this Representative is funny. This Representative should be charged with negligence and abuse of power while in office and removed. The Speaker should be held in contempt, fined, and removed from office for the flagrant waste of public tax payers’ money.. It’s time for Congress to parlay this process into one of introspection. But expulsion won’t happen. Wasting tax payers’ money should be considered a misdemeanor.
Congressional inquiries are meant to gather facts and data for legislation. Others felt that this particular act of perjury, while illegal, did not reach that level because his lie was specifically in regard to a matter of personal infidelity and that the questioning that led to it was allegedly politically-motivated.

In the aforementioned Representative’s case, he blatantly wasted American tax dollars, for which he should be removed from office
