Clammin' and Jammin' to support Traditions Casino

JOHNSON CITY -- Over a hundred people attended the monthly "Clammin' and Jammin'" event Friday night to show support for the possible casino project coming to Traditions at the Glen.
 
Those who attended set up a replica of the Traditions logo in front of the pro shop while a drone did a flyover to take video of all the public support.

Traditions Owner Bill Walsh says he thinks that it should be an obvious choice for Albany officials to give Traditions a gaming license when compared to the other applicants for the license for a number of reasons.

"We're going to employ 1,000 plus people on a permanent basis here.  That's a lot of income tax that they're going to be paying. We're going to be bringing families into this community that are going to be spending money in other businesses that are here in this community, so it's just a snowball effect as to what happens," Walsh said.
 
Walsh says that this is a community that will truly benefit from the traffic that it would attract to the area, and that any infrastructure and roadway construction costs would be covered by Traditions.
