It would be great if Vernon Downs turned into a real Casino. It would be even better if one was built within the Utica City limts. Mayber around Harbor Point. Or Why not in downtown, maybe in the old hsbc building. Doubtful, but its a thought.

Hotel Utica will be the site. The plans are already in the works. It'll feature the first Ruth's Chris upstate - they've been trying to break into the lucrative Rome-Utica market for years. This is gonna be great!!

When and if any casino resorts are built they won't come to utica. Albany is probably doing secret back room under-the-stairwell deals divying up the 3 casino spots available. Turning stone will be the death of any plans of a casino in cny period. Casinos are mostly built by capitol funds ind investment groups today and they do studies and beancounting tens of times more authoritative than the people who would be courting them... utica, rome, oneida.
These deals will all go to the Friends of NYC and Albany. That leaves tops 1 slot for upstate to fight over. Helloooooo Buffalo!

Good news is and TS work or new casinos will very likley be done by my company so it's like being paid to hammer in the coffin nails AND we get all the real dirt from the inside! I'll give you advance warning if it comes down our to do list for cny but you'll see a Casino in utica right around the time you see a wafer plant in marcy. Stick with the prison economy cny. It's more your speed.

Not true, Dean. Governor Andy said that they would all be in upstate not NYC. The idea is economic development and tourism for upstate. Also, because of a treaty w/ the Senecas, they can't be west of Geneva - so Buffalo and Rochester are out.

On the other hand, Andrew the Benevolent also said that he'd never take away anybody's guns.

The racinos should be automatically qualified for casino gaming if they want to apply for it, especially the ones that have foreign or Indian competition. Did I read the news correctly that the Governor won't allow full casino gaming that competes with Turning Stone? That can't be true. It makes no sense.

The Destito and Halbritter clause is probably a good name for that. Don't you like how that RoAnn Destito appointment worked out for everyone? All their respective interests convene into.. "How convenient".
Well, hopefully that fat, worthless......well you know what I mean, won't be there for long. It's the revolving door cronyism that has gone on in NY for years and probably will continue to go on. Here's one of the reasons NY needs to keep taxing you more or increasing fees (but those are just taxes). Got back to when Destito started her position at the head of whatever agency she is running now. It really does not matter which one because the agency heads get paid much more than a state Rep. or Senator does. Their pension is based on their highest paid three year period, which of course is as an agency head. Three years go by and they retire. Do you think the state was able to fund the higher pension they will recieve after only three years in that position? Of course not, so they have to tax more to pay for their pensions. So I don't think Destito has too much longer until she retires....and goes to work for Halbritter.

I can't imagine that the Turning Stone would squash any idea/plan for a casino in the utica area. If anything the governor probly would want that to drain some of their buisness.

Oh god. How many people do these morons think live up here in rural counties that can support all these casinos? The populations are sparse. What a waste of money. Let the Indians have the casinos. They earned every dime they are making by being tortured and killed in masses by the US Government and its predecessors since the 1600s.

Can't create any other kinds of jobs because we sent them all over seas. So this is our pathetic leaders idea of job creation.
More than that
