Skoufis Applauds Opening of Resorts World Hudson Valley

“45 months ago, I had my first meeting in Albany about a new gaming center in Orange County. This morning, Resorts World Hudson Valley opened its doors in the Town of Newburgh.

“As my time representing Newburgh comes to an end in a few days due to redistricting, I'm proud to have played a significant role in bringing this project to Orange County. Yes, the house always wins but, with a project like this, the community also always wins:

  • Over $40 million injected into rehabilitating the blighted Newburgh Mall; more investment and tenants to follow as a result

  • Over 200 good-paying, local, union jobs on top of the construction jobs that were created

  • $3 million in new, direct community payments to Newburgh from the casino each year

  • $780k to Newburgh and $454k to Orange County in new, direct aid from the state each year

  • ZERO tax breaks

“Congratulations to Resorts World, the Town of Newburgh community, and wishing everyone lots of fun and luck at the new casino!”
