Ulster County is the perfect spot for resort gaming, according to County Executive Michael Hein . He is referring to the proposed Nevele casino in the Ellenville/Wawarsing area.

The contract to build a casino will be awarded by the New York State Gaming Commission to the organization with the best proposal to meet the needs of the surrounding communities included economic, environmental, and infrastructure impact.

"We are close to New York City. We become a gateway to all of upstate New York which is precisely the intent of the legislation," Hein said referring to Prop One and its economic development intent.

Hein claims that if Ulster gets the casino he will make sure the jobs are given to Ulster county residents.   I don't know how you can say that for sure, but let's hope that is true.
