SARATOGA SPRINGS - Neither side is content to let the chips fall where they may.
A pro-casino expansion group has joined the debate over whether a full-fledged gaming facility should come to Saratoga.
Calling itself Destination Saratoga, the group counters arguments made by a group called Saratogians Against Vegas-Style Expansion, that quality of life will diminish if the current casino is allowed to add table games. Similar arguments were made before the racino opened 10 years ago.
"Downtown has done nothing but improve, and we are still the envy of the state, so I'm not sure the arguments against really hold much water when you get the facts and apply logic," said Gordon Boyd, a local business owner and member of Destination Saratoga.
SAVE says they welcome the dialogue.
