The long-awaited announcement has been made and Schenectady wins our local casino bid.

Rivers Casino and Mohawk Harbor will be the site in the Capital Region.

I had heard from most of the general public that I know that East Greenbush or even Rensselaer seemed to be the favorites going in to Wednesday's announcement, but the committee stated in a press conference that it was the group from Schenectady that presented the best option.

What do you think?
