Search for Casino Reinvestment Development Authority director could take four months

    It could take 120 days for the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority to find a permanent director to lead Atlantic City’s state-run tourism district.

    But there’s a lot to get done in the meantime, and the powers that be disagree over how much can be accomplished without a director.


    As the Press of Atlantic City reports, a few names have been dropped as possible permanent hires, including those of acting director Susan Ney Thompson and Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford.

    Thompson said whoever is appointed will have to catch up with what gets accomplished until then. That includes the creation of a master plan and a move to improve the perception of safety on the boardwalk.
