AnimeNEXT—the largest independently organization Japanese anime convention in the New York and New Jersey—just signed a five-year contract to host the event at the Atlantic City Convention Center.
On Thursday, June 25, James Howard performed his routine morning cleaning duties on the Atlantic City Boardwalk, when he witnessed a purse snatching.
In that moment, Howard, a General Maintenance employee, shouted at the suspect and then went to help the woman. At that time, he also radioed his crew and supervisor. With his help, two members of the crew—Eddie Cruz and Javier Figueroa—and Wilfredo Cintron, supervisor, helped in the search and arrest of the suspect, as well as recovery of the victim’s purse.
Global Spectrum, the facility managers of Historic Boardwalk Hall and the Atlantic City Convention Center, revealed increased progress for both venues during the organization’s first full year of management.
According to Fran Rodowicz, general manager, the company increased the amount of activity, created new affordable labor agreements, improve the technology infrastructure, raised customer service scores and more. Global Spectrum took over the facilities, owned by Casino Reinvestment Development Authority on Jan. 1, 2014.
