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.

Indian casino gambling is controversial, especially in Congress

By the Hon. John J. LaFalce

On June 25, 2008, a gigantic struggle took place on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives involving casino gambling in the State of Michigan. That controversy and struggle is highly instructive on the question of the legality of casino gambling in Buffalo.

Two titans of the House, John Dingell (D-Mich), Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and John Conyers (D-Mich), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, stood in opposing corners and came out fighting.

Leaders Go on Record Against Casino Blight

I oppose casino gambling for Buffalo because as a vision for the city and as public policy it is intellectually bankrupt and inherently corrupt. There is nothing creative, nothing imaginative about casino gambling; nothing that lifts our spirits as individuals or our hope as a community. We want, need and deserve better.

– Mark Goldman, restaurateur and local civic leader and activist


Betting on a casino in Buffalo to fix the economy is a sure loser. It is unfortunate that our state leaders denied the public the right to vote on casino gambling by doing an end run around the New York State Constitution, which prohibits gambling.

– Hon. Joseph Golombek, Jr., Buffalo Common Council Member, North District


Nationwide tribal casino operations and their governing systems have completely destroyed all aspects of democratic governance, with the result that the entire casino enterprise has corrupted nationwide American Indian self-government.

– Edna Gordon, Seneca Hen-Hawk Elder & author
