NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — After thousands of residents protested and a lawsuit was filed, the Nassau Regional Off-Track Betting has decided to do an about face on plans to open a casino in Westbury.
As WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported, Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth fought against the plan from the beginning.
“I’m looking at my emails, cause I really do answer all my emails. There’s one after the other coming in — ‘Thank you.’ ‘Thank you.’ ‘We stood together.’ ‘We did it,'” Bosworth said. “Not only was it not passing, but the voice of the opposition was getting stronger and was growing.”
