After Governor David Paterson’s ill-fated selection of the Aqueduct Entertainment Group to operate the Aqueduct racino in Queens, state officials are once again soliciting bids from potential developers, according to the Observer. The selection of AEG drew considerable ire from the state officials and the public, as accusations of favoritism and unfair political connections cropped up almost immediately after Paterson’s winter announcement. Officials have set a June 29 deadline for proposals and have pledged to announce the winning proposal August 3. [NYO]
