A vocal group of residents in Tyre have sued their town board over a proposal to bring a casino to the rural farming community. The group is now getting support from a national anti-casino activist.
Protestors gathered Thursday in a field next to a proposed casino site in Tyre. The handful of protesters held signs opposing Rochester businessman Thomas Wilmot’s casino application.
Wilmot’s one of three applicants seeking to build a casino in the Southern Tier/Finger Lakes Region.
Les Bernal, executive director of Stop Predatory Gambling, addressed the crowd.
