Sterling Forest Resort

Picture it: Atlantic City, in its heyday in the middle of the 20th century, glittering with new hotels and casinos every few years; packed to the gills with visitors from around the world, spending millions of dollars that kept New Jersey solvent and the region growing.

Today, Atlantic City and the casino industry as a whole projects a much different image: one of disrepair, prior glory, and unending anguish. Three casinos closed this summer alone, an unprecedented number. But in New York State, the casino industry has been thriving, and is now set to expand, but expanding in a way that makes sense and learning from the lessons of Atlantic City.

Genting Americas has proposed a world-class, environmentally sustainable casino development in Tuxedo, NY: Sterling Forest Resort. The facility will feature a 1,000-room, five-star hotel; a high-end spa; a new ski center and year-round fairgrounds; and a reimagined Sterling Forest Gardens some may remember from their childhood.

The development of such a resort would be an amazing opportunity for the State of New York and its surrounding communities, including mine. More than 7,000 jobs and careers from union construction to inside the casino will be created. Millions of dollars in revenue will pour in to our cash-strapped governments, and the local neighborhoods will get a tremendous boost from the activity.

I hope that Genting America's proposal is given the consideration it deserves, and that the State of New York is given this chance to grow jobs.
