Letter: Why didn’t Buffalo casino revitalize area as promised?

Why didn’t Buffalo casino revitalize area as promised?

I was impressed with The News’ extensive article on the Perry Projects, but have to ask: Where was the Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino? Our political leaders in Buffalo and Erie County wanted us to vote for the approval of the casino several years ago, because it was going to bring many jobs and huge development to that very depressed area, bringing even more jobs for the residents of the Perry Projects and neighborhood.

What do our politicians have to say now about all the wonderful jobs that were created that brought new life to the Perry Projects and downtown? By the way, since this was such a success, why don’t we build a casino in each of the neighborhoods of these politicians?
