Lesniak: Gaming in North Jersey will save Atlantic City

Lesniak: Gaming in North Jersey will save Atlantic City

Many believe that gaming in North Jersey will cannibalize Atlantic City. I disagree, and in fact, strongly believe that gaming in North Jersey will be critical to reposition the region's economy by recapturing the billions in gaming revenue that currently goes to other states.

Comcast honors veterans by partnering with U.S. Chamber's Hiring Our Heroes campaign

Triples its goal of hiring 1,000 vets
In March 2012, I was delighted when Comcast Corporation Chairman and CEO, Brian Roberts, announced our partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's Hiring Our Heroes initiative, pledging to hire 1,000 veterans over the next three years. As a wife, daughter, friend and colleague of military veterans, I have a deep appreciation for those who have dedicated themselves to service for our country. Read More »»

In wake of recent data breaches: Decoding the myths about security, data breaches for N.J. companies

In wake of recent data breaches: Decoding the myths about security, data breaches for N.J. companies

Security and data breaches don't favor one organization or industry over another, and are taking place every day. Companies should consider the “how” of a breach (as opposed to the “who”) to evaluate their exposure to a similar event. Read More »»

New Jersey’s alimony reform and business owners

Your company's technology has been breached — Now what?

Your company's technology has been breached — Now what?

Today’s ID and data theft is different than in the days before cloud computing. Back then it was one-on-one (usually at a retailer or restaurant and a credit card payment); you knew who the perpetrator was and when the situation occurred.

When it comes to jobs, N.J. is a winner, too

As president of the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey, I think it's pretty clear that New Jersey's businesses are a major focus for me.

Lesniak: Here's why you shouldn't have vetoed my bill, Gov. Christie

Lesniak: Here's why you shouldn't have vetoed my bill, Gov. Christie

Governor Christie stuck a dagger in the hearts of Atlantic City's casinos and New Jersey's racetrack industry when he vetoed my legislation to allow sports betting. During Super Bowl week, every long weekend during the NFL season, the NCAA tournament and major sporting events, you can't get a room in Las Vegas while Atlantic City is a ghost town. Read More »»
