The Casino Facility Location Board will consider comments received from the public about casino applications at any time during its review process. And, it’s easy to let them know how you feel. So, why not put fingers to your keyboard or pen to paper and voice your opinion on an issue that will affect Schenectady for decades to come. But, do so soon, as the Board may choose the winner of the Capital Regional gaming license before the end of October.

p.s. Why Bother? There were so few speakers in opposition to the Schenectady Casino at the Public Comment Event on September 22, that we fear the Location Board may believe there really is no significant opposition. The Schenectady Gazette didn’t even bother to mention there were any opponents at the Event. We’d like to think that our Statement in Opposition will be studied and given all due consideration by the Board as it stands, but more letters in opposition will make the arguments in the Statement more meaningful and powerful.
