Former Potawatomi CFO tells Gov. Walker why he should approve new casino
MILWAUKEE - The Potawatomi have said all along they stand to lose millions of dollars and thousands of jobs with a Kenosha casino.
The full response from Potawatomi Attorney General Jeff Crawford reads as follows:
“Unfortunately Mr. Schmidt, a former employee of Potawatomi Bingo Casino, has his facts wrong. The impact this Kenosha casino would have on Milwaukee has been studied extensively by the Potawatomi, and we stand firmly by the information we have submitted to state and federal officials.
Kurt Schmidt actively participated in the analysis of the impacts from this proposed Kenosha casino. He accepted the conclusions and findings of the 2012 Impact Study, including the $158 million annual impact on Potawatomi.
Potawatomi is currently reviewing all of its options regarding Mr. Schmidt’s legal and contractual duties to determine if any additional action is necessary.”
