Legislators support gaming

Scott B. Samuelson

I would like to acknowledge some of the people who have been working tirelessly to get this message out, not only in our community but as far across the state as possible. The members of Citizens for NY Gaming, business owner and developer Randy Resnick, entrepreneur and former SC Legislator Steve Kurlander, president of the SC Chamber of Commerce Teri Ward, president of the SC Partnership for Economic Development, Marc Baez and president/CEO of the Sullivan County Visitors Association, Roberta Byron-Lockwood. Thank you for your unwavering commitment to our community.

[Scott B. Samuelson is chairman of the Sullivan County Legislature.]

[Editor’s note: this summer the Sullivan County Legislature approved a resolution supporting casino gaming. The vote was eight to one.]
