Here is a suggestion fo Mayor Dolce. The governor is opening the door to seven or eight new casinos in the state. Contact Cathy Young and Andrew Goodell and make sur they know that Dunkirk deserves to be the location for a casino. The former owner of The Clarion Hotel wanted to build a casino on the waterfront. The project would have created 2,000 jobs, a payroll of $1 million per week, doubled the size of the hotel, cleared all the land from *** to the tracks, Brigham to Main Street allowing fr growth in spin-off businesses. The Seneca Nation was in favor of the project and a major hotel chain has approved the financing. I was in posession of the blue prints for the project and it was fabulous. The project flopped because city leaders did not like casino business. In 2001 I attended a meeting with the Senecas to encourage Dunkirk as a site. They liked our proposal but they were limited to the casinos already under construction. 2000 jobs would put Dunkirk back on the map. Go for it!

Phil the difference between you and the city politicians is that you are a forward thinker and your research and comments make sense. In fact they make so much sense that your ideas canot be comprehended by the citys electorate. Notice I did not say city leaders. The city is so far behind the power curvr asis the state that it's coming to the point where no improvement will be made. Politicians are supposed to look after the good of the electorate. Enough said.

Phil you are right o the money. That is the ONLY thing that will save Dunkirk. Manufacturing is NOT coming. The Lake is a perfect site for a casino. I do agree, however, the powers to be are not smart enough to pursue this avenue. They would rather circle the drain and go down. Dunkirk residents should storm the meetings at city hall until they consider this project. It would benefit all of Chautauqua County.

storm the meetings,really,really,you can't get people to go to a council meeting and you call for a storming of the hall,what dream world do you live in commentor,all people do in this city is complain,they don't take a active interest in its running if there is more than 5 citizens at a council meeting it would be a major news story,don't hold your breath to see that story in the paper anytime soon

Unfortunately I don't think you will have any luck with this mayor, not because he doesn't like the casino industry, but because he is inept. Good Luck though, Phil, that was a great idea!

Why don't you ask the city of Niagara Falls NY if they are happy with the Seneca's having a Casino in their city? I would think not.

interested Niagara Falls does not have a problem with the casino they have a problem with the Senecas not paying what they owe and I bet they would like to see another one in town to take the business away from the non paying indians!
