In his blog post, Miller stated that he is overwhelmed with the resumption of the services of Nevada casinos. He gave a sharp remark on the unfortunate incident of George Floyd’s death that has caused unrest in the country.
Miller stated that it is society’s fundamental principle to consider all citizens equal, but such thinking has not been successful in turning into a reality for all these years. He advocated that all the people bear a responsibility towards one another in which we have to listen, show compassion and empathy, and take necessary steps to establish what is right.
He added that in his brief gaming sector experience, the close-knit of the industry had taught him noble attributes to appreciate, admire, and value all involved in the process. The AGA chief said that the gaming industry helps to revive the underserved communities who require support from a partner like us to rise from death and manifest resurgence. His team has expanded operations from Boston to Tunica, Mississippi, communities across Oklahoma to Southwestern Ohio, and Detroit to Northern Nevada. All this helped in the flourishing of communities, creating employment for locals, diversified workforces, etc. causing upliftment and economic growth all around.
Despite facing the wrath of natural calamities and human crisis, the gaming industry has managed to sustain and stand strong, assured Miller. “Despite these trying times, I remain hopeful for our future and confident that for our industry and our nation, brighter days are ahead,” said Miller. He added that with the reopening of economies, it is the responsibility of the community as a whole to promote inclusion and collaboration. He is keen to see the American gaming industry booming like before.
