PRESS RELEASE

SENECA NATION, NY - Officials of the Seneca Nation of Indians and its Seneca Catskills Gaming Corp. met today in Albany with officials in the governor's office to initiate discussions about building a Seneca-owned resort in the Catskill Mountains.

Nation Foreign Relations Committee Chair Michael L. John, Tribal Councilor Brad John, Catskills Gaming Corp. board Chairman Kevin Seneca and Vice-Chairman Robert Odawi Porter met with the governor's staff for about an hour in the Capital. Also present were John Paulsen, chairman of Rotate Black Gaming Inc., the Nation's partner in the endeavor.

The Seneca Nation and the Michigan company announced Jan. 3 that they have an exclusive agreement to develop and manage a Class III gaming resort in the Catskills that is projected to produce $160 million in direct payments to state and local governments when it's complete. "The Seneca Nation demonstrated expertise and success in developing first-class casino resorts in Western New York, where they employ 4,000 people," said Michael L. John. "We look forward to partnering with the state, regional and local officials, Rotate Black and others to bring similar economic development to the Catskills region."
