The dispatch’s Daily Briefing has pointed out a great option for the centrally-located but almost-dead City Center Mall: A CASINO!
But Mayor Mike Coleman killed the option before it even got out of the idea phase.
Supposedly, Mayor Mike Coleman was in Detroit today for a meeting with the leaders of other cities to discuss the foreclosure crisis. The meeting took place at the newly-opened MGM Grand Detroit.
The Casino/Hotel, which has taken in $54.9 million since its opening on Oct. 3, “features 18 floors of hotel rooms — the bathrooms have TVs — and 100,000 square feet of slots, black-jack tables and poker rooms.”
When asked about his visit, “Coleman said he didn’t visit the casino and remains opposed to having them in Columbus.”
His comments leave me wondering: would Bill Todd have pushed for a casino?
