In a recent Newsday article a poll shows that Long Islanders support the idea of have a casino on the island and that Belmont is their prefer site. Now the question is if politicians can finally work together and get this project done, and if Wang and the tribe want to work together to build an arena as part of the project. The arena has been suggested as part of this plan by many Nassau politicians and the tribe said they were interested, so one has to wonder if Wang is interested.
The tribe and local politicians have the public behind them. Its time for Long Island to be progressive and develop something than can help them get out of this economic down turn.
Of the potential sites for a proposed Shinnecock Indian Nation casino, 35 percent favored Belmont Park, 32 percent wanted Yaphank , and 17 percent were for the Nassau Hub. Eleven percent do not want a casino on Long Island and 5 percent had no opinion or did not know.http://mobile.newsday.com/inf/infomo;JSESSIONID=A64D0E0DB0F0514AAA06.3201?site=newsday&view=top_stories_item&feed:a=newsday_1min&feed:c=topstories&feed:i=1.3421288&part=2
