“It was a delight to work with all of you on this initiative that is so critical to the future of our community. I have lived and worked in Atlantic City for 26 years. During those years, I have heard and read about so many “plans” that never were brought to completion. Thanks to Gathering Ground, we now have a blueprint for success. What you have done for us will impact the lives of so many people for years to come.”
