County Sheriff Supports Casino Proposal

Add one more voice of support for an Albany Casino -  The Exit 23 or E23 as it's called casino proposal got a strong endorsement from Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple - the Sheriff dashed a letter off to the developer and Capital OTB expressing his "unequivocal support for Project E23' - which sits on land owned by US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's family, its strategic location isolating it from Albany neighborhoods.

The Albany Common Council is mulling over the proposal: the Times Union reports officials in nearby Bethlehem are worried about the impact a casino might have on their community.
