AC Brewery
DeWalt Brewing Company, which earlier this year secured a $1 million tax credit over 10 years to move to Atlantic City from Pennsylvania, hopes to soon begin work on its site next to the Little Water Distillery. Brewery owner Chris DeWalt said he is hoping to hold a grand opening for the site in the spring. Read more from Route 40’s interview with DeWalt.

An ‘Agreement of Sale’ was filed for the casino property formerly known as the Revel yesterday. It’s not at all clear what – if anything – it means (although it doesn’t seem to bring a reopening of the site any closer). The document was signed by Bruce Deifik, a Denver-based developer, but it wasn’t signed by any representatives for Glenn Straub’s Polo North (the Revel’s holding company). Deifik is working with the group that wanted to rebrand the property as TEN. Read Route 40’s story here.

County Politicking
In case you hadn’t noticed from the latest TV ads, things are getting tense in New Jersey’s second legislative district. Last week’s Stockton University poll showed LD2’s Republican candidate Chris Brown and Democrat candidate Colin Bell tied in the race for state senator and there’s been a ratcheting up of tension on the airwaves and elsewhere since.

Elsewhere in local politics, the Atlantic County Republicans are now requesting the state’s deputy attorney general investigate what they say is evidence of mail-in-ballot vote tampering. According to the letter and the ballot attached to it, an Atlantic City voter recently requested a mail-in ballot form from the Atlantic County Clerk’s Office: when he received it, it was already marked with votes cast for three Democratic candidates. Read the letter and see the ballot yourself. Also, here’s a response from the Atlantic County Clerk’s Office. And read more via the Press of Atlantic City. Also – cast your mind back to the Atlantic City Democratic primary when there was a recount after a tight race that saw Frank Gilliam win on mail-in ballots.

In the rest of the day’s news, the cash-strapped Memorial Hospital of Salem County is on “life support” lawmakers say, the bribery trial for U.S. Senator Bob Menendez is still going on, casinos “have to change everything” to assure safety and Camden County has received federal funding to help more prison inmates overcome addiction.
