A casino won’t be cashing in their chips if John Liu has anything to say about it.
Democratic Mayoral Candidate John Liu signed onboard the Anti-Willets Point Casino Coalition’s petition to stop the development of a casino at Willets Point, Queens on Sunday.
“I will never support a casino in New York City much less Willets Point,” said Liu, adding, “This community deserves more and we demand more.”
Comptroller Liu, who also served as the area’s city councilman, met with community leaders as well as members of the group to express his support for the petition.
“He is the first Citywide candidate and representative who is supporting this important community issue,” according to the group’s spokesman Michael Olmeda.
