Great location. Far enough from the city and it's problems yet easy access from just about anywhere via thr Thruway, 390,490 & 590

Gates, NY--Building a casino in the Town of Gates isn't a gamble, according to its supervisor, Mark Assini.
"Certainly, it could have a positive impact on the tax base here in the Town of Gates," Assini said.
Assini submitted a formal proposal to the Seneca Nation of Indians to build a casino at the Rochester Tech Park.
Assini said the 300 acre space can hold a casino slightly larger than the Seneca Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls.
"They are very interested and I'm simply saying why not gates?"
The idea came after a survey was conducted that found residents in the area thought the town was a good location.
"I've talked to numbers of residents if not thousands and it's been very positive and support for that location for this proposal," Assini added.

Saw the clip last night. Talked to many residents, maybe a hundred, if not thousands. This guy either has a problem being truthful, or counting is tough for him. Thousands of residents? Doubtful.
