No more casinos is what former Rochester Mayor Bill Johnson is calling for. He says the recent proposal to build a new casino in our area is a bad idea.

Mark Assini, Gates Town Supervisor. YOU ARE A LIAR. Casinos in Niagara Falls and Buffalo have not lived up to their agreements with those cities. For every three slot machines, (one armed bandits), the city loses one job by deferred discretionary income going to the gambling conglomerates and not to local business. Nevada has the second highest crime rate per capita, behind Tennessee, then other States. (Yahoo News).

For once (and probably the only time) I agree with Bill Johnson. A casino would compound the difficulties Rochester has experienced with rising crime.
Casinos do generate some tax revenue, but in the scheme of things they're a terrible idea, particularly in Rochester.

The Senecas have exclusive rights to build a casino complex in this area.. They do not pay taxes because they are a sovereign nation. They are not subject to State food or gaming laws, nor employment rules. Employees who feel unfaired against have to go to the Tribal Council with their grievances. Their casinos offer amenities 55-70% discounts. No standard entreatment complex can compete. Guess who pays for the crime and gamblers' addiction problems.: THE TAX PAYERS.
