RFK JR AGAINST GAMING NEAR CATSKILLS

Nov 9, 2001 12:00 AM

Another Kennedy has sounded the alarm against gambling.

Robert Kennedy Jr. has threatened legal action in New York if casinos are proposed anywhere near the Catskill Mountains, according to a New York Post story.

Kennedy, a lawyer/environmental activist, said the extra traffic and expected development the casinos would bring is a bad gamble for the quality of New York City's drinking water.

The son of the slain New York senator, said it is crucial for the city's drinking water that open space be retained and kept free from the pollution casino traffic would bring.
