There is a lot of money changing hands here.It seems to me that a lot of politicians are making a lot of promises without constituent approval. On both sides.

Cleansed money through current casino, dangled in front of greedy politicians, to save a county infiltrated with drugs and crime? This has nothing to do with the concern for the native land. An expansion of gambling venues and the criminal activity involved should be considered and decided carefully.

Where's the public input ,? Shouldn't the people of the towns involved have a say instead of just the politicians . And who'se to make sure the Mohawks don't hold up any payments over BS excuses like they did the other time because of some gambling going on by other Indians?

Demoncrats in St. Lawrence County are corrupt. I can't hardly wait till they start campaigning for re-election. Skeletons will be flying out of their closets.
