BUFFALO - The Seneca Nation of Indians received major backing to reverse an earlier court order to close down the Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino. Supporting affidavits were filed November 4th in the Seneca Nation's legal brief by Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, Erie County Executive Chris Collins and Robert Williams, a top official with the New York State Bureau of Gaming Operations.
Mayor Brown said in his affidavit "To prohibit gaming on the nine acres that has been decreed Indian land would deprive Buffalo of a new source of much-needed revenue for future economic development projects."
Erie County Executive Chris Collins wrote in his affidavit,
"In these difficult times, the Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino has proven to be an
important source of revenue for the local economy. And, it is projected to be an
even far more significant contributor to the Erie County economy when its
permanent facility is completed."
