NJ State Senator Bob Gordon Discusses the State Fair Meadowlands As Related To Tourism


NJ State Senator Bob Gordon
Learning that fairs and carnivals have an impact on the state, Senator Robert M. Gordon had a meeting recently with fair owner Al Dorso and Amusements of America principal Dominic Vivona Jr. An obscure area, Gordon was unaware of the people traffic and the tourism dollars that something like the State Fair Meadowlands brings into New Jersey. Gordon sits on the State Tourism Board.

Dorso and Vivona explained to the Senator that State Fair Meadowlands is the largest crowd drawing fair in the state. Amusements of America, headquartered in Englishtown, is the largest carnival in New Jersey and one of the largest in the country. Together, they generate a huge amount of tourism dollars.

Due to the economy, independent owner operators of super rides have been averse to bringing them to New Jersey. This has resulted in a smaller amount of rides at the fair and deprives the patrons of more and diverse thrill rides. A ripple effect, it results in less dollars being spent, not only for rides, but the food and games being offered. In turn, the state revenue decreases because of the drop in volume! In turn, the residents of New Jersey have fewer benefits from the dollars generated by the fair and paid to the state.

Senator Gordon said that he will delve into the problems that these gentlemen face and will try to help them!
