Destination Saratoga is a coalition of local officials, business leaders, small business owners, community members, and Saratoga Casino and Raceway, who are committed to economic growth and development and responsible gaming in the Capital Region and Saratoga.
On Election Day, voters rejected a Las Vegas-style casino, and we agree with them. This leaves our community with a choice between a trusted casino operator – our neighbors, who live and work right here in the Capital Region – creating new jobs by expanding operations in a way that is consistent with the historic character of our community OR out-of-town developers with designs to build a Las Vegas-style behemoth resort casino.
Allowing Saratoga Casino and Raceway to expand and offer live table games would:
- Add 600-700 good jobs with benefits, in addition to construction jobs;
- Generate $11 million annually in direct aid, split evenly between the City of Saratoga Springs and Saratoga County, which will help offset property taxes; and
- Preserve and increase the existing substantial funding the casino provides in local property taxes, education funding, direct aid to the City of Saratoga Springs and Saratoga County, as well as protecting the 1,200 permanent good jobs with benefits the casino already supports.
The choice is clear
Allowing expanded casino gaming at Saratoga Casino and Raceway is the right choice
