NATIONAL GAMBLING IMPACT STUDY COMMISSION
CHAIRMAN JAMES: Thank you.
I'd like to take this time to thank those of you who have come before the Commission this evening to tell your stories and to share with the Commission.
I also want to thank probably one of our unsung heros in the room, our signer right over here, and I want to thank you. I know how difficult that can be particularly for this long a period of time, and I do want to thank you.
For those individuals who are on the waiting list but did not have the opportunity to present tonight, I want you to know that this Commission is a very hard working Commission, and that they do read the volumes of material that come in, and so you have the opportunity to submit your testimony in writing, and it will be a part of our deliberative process.
Again, I want to thank those of you who came out to participate in this public forum. I think it speaks well of the City of Atlantic City to have as many of its citizens turn out tonight in order to be heard before this Commission.
We are truly grateful to you and assure you that your time is valued by us, and we so much appreciate your input into our process.
Having said that, I would ask you to join us tomorrow as we continue our deliberative process, and we have several expert panels that will be presenting to the Commission.
Again, thank you to those who made our site visits possible today and who contributed to our time.
The meeting stands adjourned until 8:30 tomorrow morning.
(Whereupon, at 9:05 p.m., the meeting was adjourned, to reconvene at 8:30 a.m., Thursday, January 22, 1998.)
