Letter To The Editor | 10.31.2013

Dear Editor:

No to More Casinos in New York State” (editorial, Oct. 25) holds casinos responsible for a range of ills. To the contrary, casinos are a part of the mainstream entertainment industry, and they are supporting local businesses, paying higher average wages than similar businesses and helping communities grow. This is why communities continue to embrace gambling, and why today commercial casinos can be found in 23 states.

We take issue with the editorial’s portrayal of our industry. From Bethlehem, Pa., to Kansas City, Mo., and from the Gulf Coast to the Midwest, casinos are valued as community partners and thriving economic engines. That is the reality of what’s taking place across the country, and it’s a role we’re proud to play.
