Gambling Corporation Prefers Fiction Over Fact

(Posted 2/27/07) The Taylor Policy Group, which writes promotional material for the gambling industry, released a "study" last week claiming that the Seneca casino operations have benefitted the Western New York economy. The Taylor report says that Seneca cigarette and gambling operations together had a $588 million impact on WNY GDP for 2005.

George M. Palumbo, chairman of the economic and finance department at Canisius College, refuted this claim. In regard to gambling revenue, he pointed out that true economic impact would be money coming from outside the area. Palumbo noted that 86 percent of Seneca Niagara's gambling revenue comes from Western New York.

The Taylor report, paid for by the Seneca Nation, is part of an ongoing public disinformation campaign waged by gambling interests. In 2005 , the Seneca Nation produced a report with similar specious claims. That report stated that Seneca casinos generated $100 million in revenue to New York State, and $72 million in payroll during 2004. Omitted was the fact that at the same time over $300 million in gambling losses came out of the pockets of local residents.

Leaders Go on Record Against Casino Blight

Gambling has destroyed many families and futures. Generations will suffer, and especially our children, because of gambling.

– Hon. Arthur O. Eve, former Deputy Speaker, New York State Assembly


Our community's future lies in developing that which renders us unique, not in copying casino gambling efforts that have failed so many other cities.

– Kevin P. Gaughan, local civic leader & former mayoral candidate, City of Buffalo


The Haudenosaunee Confederacy has repeatedly condemned commercial gambling as an activity contrary to our traditional teachings. It has no place among a people whose original instructions are to care for the earth, sustain our rituals of thanksgiving and preserve land, sky, and water in trust for those yet unborn. Casino gambling is but the latest tactic devised by external agencies to divorce us from our heritage, separate us from the earth, and extinguish our indigenous rights ...

– Douglas M. George-Kanentiio, nationally honored Haudenosaunee author, journalist and Indian activist
