Albany councilman opposes all Capital Region casinos

ALBANY, N.Y. – One Albany Common Council member has introduced legislation opposing Las Vegas-style casinos in the Capital Region.

The resolution says the Albany Common Council is opposed to a casino in the city of Rensselaer as well as other proposals within the Capital Region.

Judd Krasher cites the reason as the impact it could have on the area, including concerns about gambling addictions.
