Don Guardian with Glenn Straub

Atlantic City’s mayor met with the new owner of Revel for the first time Monday.

While Don Guardian said he has read a lot about Glenn Straub in the media, this was the first time he got to meet him.

“He shared with me how he would like to help us create a vibrant city with cranes in the sky putting people back to work,” the mayor said. “I shared with him all the exciting development projects and municipal service improvements the city has been initiating since I became mayor.”

The Florida real estate developer has offered a grand vision for Revel’s rebirth, including a $108 million water park and running high-speed ferries or catamarans between Atlantic City and Manhattan to tap the New York market.

Guardian said he welcomes Straub’s “enthusiasm toward remaking Atlantic City into a destination that goes beyond gaming.”

He said they both agree Atlantic City’s best days are ahead of it.
