Some Henrietta residents really don't want a casino 

By one speaker's estimate, approximately 120 people packed into a room at Henrietta Town Hall last night in response to a proposed casino in the town. And when the speaker asked how many in attendance support the casino, which would be run by the Seneca Nation of Indians, no hands were raised. 

During the meeting's public comment section, speaker after speaker explained why a casino would be bad for Henrietta. It'd siphon money away from the existing businesses, its free booze would lead to more DWI's, the town would see an influx of traffic, crime would go up, and drug activity and prostitution would increase, they said.

"It really doesn't matter what their proposal is," said resident Irene Magee. "We don't want a casino here."
