Dear Editor:

The Chronicle’s May 16 editorial “A ‘bettor’ casino plan for NY” was as good as a Mets grand slam!

As editor-at-bat you kept your eyes on the ball and cleared all bases with your determination to drive home your point, that all casinos must be treated equal when it comes to full table games.

I urge all New York City and Long Island residents to inform Gov. Cuomo that if he expects the powerful downstate block of voters to support the gaming referendum in November, he better rethink his remark, “In order to make full casinos work upstate, they have to be blocked downstate.”

In addition, they should tell their state legislators that if the governor goes through with his ill-conceived plan, we New Yorkers will, on Election Day, drop our Big Apple on Albany!
