First off, this guy above is the truth. Second off, politics and local legislation is messy.
Save Saratoga, the local organization fighting back on the state’s plans to build a casino in Saratoga Springs, is back at it, and wants your help. Remember weeks ago when they threw that benefit concert at Putnam Den with local celebrity Maryleigh Roohan and Bo Peep and The Funk Sheep? And they were supposedly successful in getting the necessary support to oppose the casino? Well, like I said, politics is messy and the state has thrown the burden back on the city to gain local support.
Save Saratoga now wants your support, Skidmore students and alumni. They want you, as productive member of this community, to voice your opposition to the building of a casino. I mean, who wants to go to college in a gambling town? We’re already handing thousands of dollars over to the administration, so why give another excuse to throw money at The Man?
