BETHLEHEM - Even though none of the six casinos that have been proposed for the Capital Region will be built in their community, on Wednesday night Bethlehem residents wanted to make sure they still have a say in what ever happens.
But even though there were mixed feelings at Bethlehem Town Hall, the majority of residents are clearly "against" the nearby proliferation of casino gambling.
When Bethlehem residents went to the polls last November, 61 percent of them voted "no" on proposal one. In other words, they feel they've already made it crystal clear they don't want casino gambling in their community.
"I'm concerned about the safety of my sons at Glenmont being so close to a casino," said Amy Scharf.
