As Election Day quickly approaches, there continues to be much confusion among Anne Arundel County residents about exactly what the proposed casino at Arundel Mills means for the area around the mall and for Anne Arundel County. Even after all this time, the question I am most asked is still: "Now, where will this casino be located?" As vice president/general manager of Arundel Mills, I believe that all Anne Arundel County residents need to know, straight form the source, why I believe Maryland Live!

When Arundel Mills was proposed in the late 1990s, it was to be one of the largest malls on the East Coast. In order to win local support, the Mills Corporation shrank the proposed size of the mall and offered to reconfigure roads, add a community room, and provide land for Anne Arundel Community College. With those concessions by the Mills Corporation, the project received local support. Slot machines were never proposed or even imagined in the project. Since the mall's opening in 2000, the area has seen an explosion of residential development.

So Anne Arundel County voters are evenly divided over slots at the Arundel Mills Mall ( "Poll shows tight battle for Arundel Mills slots," Oct. 24.) I would be willing to bet that those for the slots parlor don't live anywhere near Arundel Mills and/or don't shop there. Consider this, if you live in Annapolis or areas south of there, would you like to have the slots parlor at Annapolis Mall? Or how about a slots parlor at Marley Station Mall? It's that same old thing — I don't want it in my backyard, but I will be happy to vote to put it in your backyard!
