Casinos pitched closer to New York City worry promoters of proposed gambling resorts in Catskills is the headline of an Associated Press article published yesterday in Freeman, and here are a few quotes:
“The gambling expansion amendment to the state constitution approved by voters in November was promoted as an economic boost for the three upstate regions that will get the first four casinos…”
“A top location from the get-go was the Catskills…”
“If we don’t have something around here for people to get their lives in order, we’re going to be in trouble, without a doubt…”
“Big-name operators such as Caesars Entertainment and Genting Group believe a casino on the outskirts of the nation’s largest metropolitan region could win big.”
Follow the money!
