The article reports that the future of gaming in the Las Vegas Beltway in Nevada may depend on its local leaders. Mayor Michael Montandon is said to have been outspoken in his opposition to lining the Beltway with casinos. Pending approvals for gaming overlays are those of joint venture between Boyd Gaming Corp. and Olympia Corp. and the second site for Aliante Station. Montandon's term will end and city Council members may reportedly need to raise money from anyone of these gaming companies.
