A new report from USA Today says a member of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s budget division met last week in Albany with Thomas Wilmot, co-owner of del Lago Resort and Casino.
The report says the topics Wilmot and the Cuomo administration member discussed weren’t immediately clear and a casino spokesperson declined comment. Earlier this year, Wilmot traveled to the state capital and made an unsuccessful bid for a lower tax rate before the state budget was passed. del Lago has failed to meet revenue projections since it opened in February 2017.
Back in March, Wilmot told the newspaper that he thinks that the reported struggling facility needed some state help, but he was unsure of what the future held.
