Will1960, I am a big supporter of the casino and this entire project. I loved the original plan but this redesign is subpar at best. In my opinion, I believe they should stick to a contemporary concept as the original design rather than a bargain outlet walkabout design. An updated contemporary concept wold be more inline with what I think will attract more customers to this venue. This design would also save the builder tens of millions in construction costs over the redesign. The original design was something that complemented the new Socha project a few miles up the road. This rendition reminds me more of the Gloub building across the street from the development. Let's bring an updated style to this project as originally shown!

Were they trying to make it look like a bargain outlet mall because that's the look they gave it. Why hasn't someone ask Rush for the budget estimates of the original design compared to this design. The difference will be in the tens of millions. Planning commission should send them back to the drawing board.

Sounds like Godlewski was just caught in a lie. He said he didn't seek a Republican endorsement until the Democrats chose Tommasone but Donovan states she spoke to him running as a Republican back in March. Which is it? Godlewski spoke to the Republicans for two months but never contacted the Democrats to state his interest in running and then cries foul when the democrats endorse someone else...

Does he understand how ridiculous his position is?

Koetzle never disappoints with his childish behavior whenever the Town of Glenville has interaction with county government. His "taking my ball and going home" mindset is getting very old. Koetzle, leave the politics out of it and work together for the good of your constituents.

Who set the amounts for purchase on these properties? Wouldn't the taxpayers realize additional revenues through an auction process?

If I'm understanding your opinion correctly, the residents of Duanesburg should just leave the traffic, security and enforcement up to the promoter? Isn't that what was done in years past and has been a complete failure? I hardly believe the tax payers in this county should be paying tens of thousands of dollars for the law enforcement that will have to be assigned to the outskirts of this event to deal with the promoters failures while the people who are putting this event on, line their pockets with millions of dollars...

Anyone putting on a large event like this should have to reimburse municipalities for the expenses they occur whether it be; street maintenance, health dept, law enforcement, fire and anything else that is required. To put that on the backs of the overburdened tax payers is crazy.

"I felt that this event could move forward once we’ve addressed the issues the local community has because people should have the opportunity to gather with friends and family on a beautiful piece of land in Mariaville.”

Is this guy for real? To gather with family and friends does not include 20,000 people from several different states taking over a small rural community and holding it hostage for several days! The drug use and abuse of the neighbors is crazy.

Thank you Sheriff Dagostino for standing up for the residents of Duanesburg!
