Assemblyman Cliff Crouch stated that the ownership at Traditions and Tioga Downs are working together to bring a Casino to the Southern Tier. Crouch, along with Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo and State Senator Tom Libous are urging Governor Cuomo to reopen the bidding for a fourth Casino and for this Casino to be granted to the Southern Tier, the siting commission only picked 3 sites for new casinos, with the Southern Tier choice about 85 miles north of Binghamton in Seneca county. The plan for this bid was jointly presented at a press conference Tuesday at Traditions.
