The president of the Sullivan County Partnership for Economic Development, Michael Sullivan says he believes his county will soon lead in job creation in the Hudson Valley, New York. That is at least in terms of percentage of the total population. It may take a combination of factors, from manufacturing jobs and industrial parks, to casinos and Video Lottery Terminals, but the jobs are coming. Among the largest single projects is a Video Lottery Terminal level for Monticello Raceway, billed as a Raceino. This is expected to create 400 jobs within a revamped, enclosed, allweather third level now under construction at the long underutilized racetrack. Sullivan also believes that up to three Indian-operated casinos will be approved by the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs by next January, although construction won't begin until after that happens. They would create several thousand jobs.
