"The development of a gaming and entertainment facility will begin a new chapter in our history - one that will be marked with renewed hope, economic self-sufficiency and bright futures for generations to come.” - Elaine Bethel Fink
“Our entertainment and gaming resort will bring new opportunities for our community as well as Madera County. With new resources for education, jobs and housing, we can find ways to preserve the culture of our elders while providing hope for our children’s future.” - Maryann McGovran
"Our project will be a positive addition to the County of Madera, adding thousands of jobs, drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors and providing numerous other direct and indirect benefits to the community and our citizens." - Pat Beihn
“We are a big Tribe with many citizens and many needs for our people. The casino project won’t make any of us rich, but tribal government gaming will help our people take care of the basics and protect the important cultural accomplishments of the Mono people. The proposed casino will also allow the Tribe to continue to invest in the economic development of the town of North Fork.” - Bonnie Hale
