Inga Saffron Makes Her Recommendations on Casinos in Today's Inky
Generally speaking, I’m aghast that our political leaders consider building casinos appropriate economic development. If we have to have casinos in Pennsylvania, I’d rather have them in the Poconos or Lancaster County where jobs are needed too and where tax revenues could still assist Philly. In the city, to the extent that we must have them, what would be the best way to have our cake and eat it too? Is it too late to sell the right to licenses for local casinos upstate? I don't see why not?
At any rate, Inga Saffron made her recommendation in the inky today. She thinks Pinnacle, located on Delaware Avenue is the best planned design and she argued that Trump Street, in the Northwest, is an improvement over the other options. I would have liked to see an argument for putting two casinos on Delaware Avenue. I would prefer to keep the Donald in A.C. rather than give the local media an excuse to cover him to death.
