Sussex County Council questions new casino

Should a new casino be built in Sussex County?

Legislation to create two new gaming halls in Delaware is being heard in the State House in Dover.

Council member Joan Deaver tells our sister station Delaware 105.9 it could be good for the local economy.

"I personally do not like any kind of gambling, but it's all over the state. We have it now, and if Sussex County can have a new facility and new jobs, that's fine with me," says Deaver

Deaver, however, was in the minority

Council member Sam Wilson says he learned at the recent Harrington Raceway shareholders' meeting that they are "hurting for business."
