Of his experience, Butterworth said, “It has been really cool. Mostly every month there would be a weekend or two where my girlfriend and I would go down to Atlantic City to see a free concert, sporting event, or show and it was always good time. My advice to the next Chairman of the Boardwalk is to take advantage of the summer coming up. It’s going to be a great experience being able to enjoy the beach and the boardwalk while attending all of the great upcoming summer shows at Boardwalk Hall.”
