If it puts people on a payroll why not try to get one. Its even possible you may get a job but I doubt it. Its easier to complain. Look at it this way, it will give the County more income to support your lazt ass.

anything that can bring jobs to ogdensburg is a good thing and anyone that talks trash from the city of new york should look at the joke his own city is. get rid of that the whole state would be a better place.

Are all you people , up there brain dead ? Why would you want to bring in a bussiness that will put people to work and give them some self worth and a future for the children . You have a wounderful city , but a bunch of lazy governmental officials, that have no vision . Are you better off with drugs ? I think not ! If you don't smarten up soon the only things you'll have is a prison and a cemetery . That will make your parents so proud !

I hate politics in the state of NY. The reasoning behind putting a casino in St. Lawrence County is dumb. The Akwesasne Mohawk Casino had a contract with NYS and the federal government. In order to stay open the casino was supposed to pay some of the surrounding towns so much every year and the tribe stopped paying that money. In this contract NYS said they would not allow another casino within so many miles. Now since the contract was supposedly broken, NY wants to have a casino nearby to not only get money back but to compete with Akwesasne

Why not?? This is a beautiful area regardless the season. It's a great idea and will bring in big the bucks. Couldn't be any worse then a sexual predator unit or two prisons.

The City needs a lot of things. A college would be better than a Racino.

You ar exactly right. Fine example of the Morality in the city of Ogdensburg. For an impoverished city to even contemplate a casino shows there is something wrong. It would just make matters worse for all the residents of Ogdensburg except of course those with a stake in the Revenue collected. Let this Mafia type continue and next will be a Strip Club for your daughters to have gainfull employment.

Excellent Idea, a College. A College that will educate people so they can be self-sufficient in the way of Living Green. Solar Panels, Underground Living, Pellet Stoves, Gardening and the List goes on. This Country is in a Fiscal Crisis because of GREED. Why would anyone thought of as a Public Leader make our situation worse? Ans. is GREED. i CAN TELL YOU FROM EXPERIENCE THAT LIVING GREEN IS ACTUALLY EASIER AND HEALTHIER THAN THE CURRENT WAY OF LIFE IN THE US OF A. yOU PUT IN A CASINO IN THE BURG AND I WILL BE PRAYING FOR A TSUNAMI, EARTHQUAKE OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT WILL LEVEL THIS MESS AND WE CAN START OVER AGAIN. nOT WITH A CASINO.
