Gov. Ducey is Against West Valley Casino

April 23, 2015

There is another controversy with the $400 million Glendale casino. State Governor Doug Ducey is being blamed by the Tohono O'Odham Nation for stopping the casino from opening.

Economic growth and creation of new jobs was supported by the Governor in the past. However, the Chairman for the Tohono O'Odham Nation, Ned Norris Jr., does not believe that the Governor is in support of their project at all.

The tribe plans on opening a casino on their land in the West Valley. Off of 95th and Northern avenues. Plans also include a hotel and convention center.

1,300 jobs have been created by the project.

Gov. Ducey is pushing for the casino portion to be denied by the state gaming agency.

Ian Hugh, the Glendale Vice-Mayor, is in favor of the project. $1.4 million would be paid yearly to the city. The money would cover the city's operation costs.

The Tohono O'Odham Nation have been to court 13 times over the years over the proposed casino. Each time the court has ruled in favor of the tribe.

An appeal to the latest ruling has been filed by the state.

The Tohono O'dham plan to open their casino later this year.
