A strong debate is going on between the two high-flying and renowned celebrities of the gaming world in their seventies to save their own vested benefits. These owners of the reputable companies and the real estate personalities always try to put forth their cases in a more effective way than the other.
According to Del. Justin D. Ross (D-Prince George’s), an enthusiastic participant of the debate declared that the main issue of the debate is a casino over which these two celebrities are skirmishing publicly in a childish way. They have invested enough funds and are now appealing constantly in front of the officials for their cases.
The legislators of the Maryland officials are being persuaded by the chairman of the Peterson Cos, Peterson about the benefits of one more casino at National Harbor on the Potomac River banks. One of the leading gamblers-MGM would be solicited to act as the operator in case the strategy of Peterson works well before the officials. In contrast to this, Cordish, the chairman of the Cordish Cos. is striving hard to save Maryland Live Casino worth $550 million dollars opened in Anne Arundel County. According to Peterson, Cordish wants to dominate and is scared of the rivalry. Further, he stated that he has no negative feelings for Peterson; it is just an affair of business. In addition to this, he said that by and large the interests of the state surpass his own interests. He added that to give permission for opening of a fresh casino prior to commencement and stabilization of the already present five casinos would be useless. As per Gov. Martin O’ Malley (D)’s Fridays’ statement, Cordish is leading at the moment, however things could take a turn. The agreement upon extensive gambling policy including Prince George’s location is still awaited by Malley. The concept of a sixth casino as promoted by the radio and TV advertisements in favor of Peterson is being supported by labor-led association.
