It ain't enough that the gambling addicts aren't scalped at the Turning Stone? It wouldn't surprise me if it were found out that gambling addiction counselors were shareholders of the casino.

If we dont get casino river boats, the pensions will be unfunded. Does NYS really want more pension obligations to fall on NYS shoulders?
Also, who gives a flying hoot what the Indians and Hallbriter want. They are an independent country and as long as they pay no taxes, I oppose their interest. Aren't you tired of our politicians working for Indians before working for taxpayers?
I dont even care if Cuomo's oligarchy of casino placement doesn't choose Utica for a casino. Bring the boats anyway. We have an empty harbor. If gambling is legal, It shouldn't be in Utica.
We need casinos to survive, Bring 'em if cuomo wants 'em here or not. He is no ceaser.
The pensions need to stay unfunded and be rescinded. End of story. Allowing gambling didn't save you with the lottery money. Almost nothing from that actually gets to the students of NYS regardless of what they tell you. Have you looked at the average person buying scratchoffs lately?

I agree with your point. If NYS spends 15k per student per year, imagine if you gave each student the money in a education voucher instead of giving it to administrators? I think that the administrators are eating the students' lunch. I've often thought there was a link between the bubble-in answer sheets in school and the form you bubble-in for the lotto.

finally the tax increase isn't big enough to bring in the state control board, the pensions will continue to gut the city. Looks like Palmeiri bet that the State wouldn't do a thing, and was right.

The Native Americans deserve a lot more than they are given. Their race was all but obliterated from the planet by the white man. Let them have their casinos. Godspeed.

Utica ain't no Vegas. or even Atlantic City. The demographics around here cannot afford to gamble. So shoving more casinos in Oneida County is a mronic idea. Oversaturation of the market.

People are crazy if they think St.Andrew will give Utica a casino. If by some crazy reason they do,the money will flow down the funnel to the shit hole NYC!

they bring crime from the loosers who go broke there. Come on ,,how much money is left in these 8 dollar an hour jobs that people have to spend at casinos. You might better legalize pot and reap profits from taxing it.Now he would be talking something smart.
