WHAT ALBANY DOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW
Casinos damage communities
Local communities have to provide increased police/fire protection, criminal justice, social services, road maintenance.
Local businesses are hurt by casino in-house competition; consumer dollars will be drained from the local economy
Crime rates increase
Most jobs are low wage and high turnover; non-local low wage workers come to the community to fill casino’s needs.
Gambling interests corrupt our politicians with their outsized campaign contributions
New casinos create new addicted gamblers because of proximity and casinos depend on these problem gamblers for about half their revenues
Some local community people become gambling addicts and the state’s share of the casino income won’t come back to help our gambling addicted friends and family.
