Speak out on Saratoga racino's expansion

The expansion of Saratoga's racino raises a lot of questions about the role of city government (or lack of it); the need for an expansion of gaming in Saratoga; the need for another hotel in the area; the impact of the proposed 2,000-seat arena on local entertainment venues; and whether this project can be successful in the shadow of a new casino being built somewhere nearby.
