Help Rivers Casino thrive before looking at exit

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionThe Jan. 14 column, “Look At Casino In The Past, Present, And Future,” by Dr. Roger Hull is a well-written column dealing with the issues that exist with the Rivers Casino and the possibility of a Schenectady without a casino. My only criticism of the column is his reference made about “robberies in the casino parking lot.” Dr. Hull readily admits that this is “hearsay.” To even mention this, without a police report substantiating this claim, can be detrimental to the casino and does the casino a gross injustice — especially if it’s just “hearsay.” Maybe, Donald Trump is correct about “fake news.”Every casino has its problems with security, problem gamblers and misguided financial projections. Those casinos and cities that have been successful have found corrections to those problems or have developed plans to cope with them. Why not focus on this instead of developing plans for “life after the casino.” Let’s hope that the Rivers Casino and the city of Schenectady can focus on developing plans for success.Paul FoxSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady police reform sessions pivot to onlineEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesTroopers: Schenectady pair possessed heroin, crack cocaine in Orange County Thruway stopFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?last_img read more
