Issues

West Valley Casino and Resort

In August 2014, the Glendale City Council voted four to three in favor of a deal with the Tohono O'odham Nation to construct a multimillion dollar casino and resort in Glendale. The deal has proven to be divisive within Glendale and it has become a major issue in local municipal politics.[3] Supporters of the deal have cited the facility's potential for bringing in new revenues and tourism to the city, while opponents - including a group that has filed a petition to turn the issue into a ballot measure - have argued that the deal represents a lost opportunity for job growth that it will pave the way for similar gaming facilities throughout Maricopa County.[4][5]
