Re the June 14 story Genting seeks ally on bayfront site: While I think the former Miami Herald site is one of the premier locations for a mixed-use development, and I would love to be involved in such a possible project, I am against gambling in Miami, particularly in a downtown location.

I, as well as many others, have worked hard over the past three decades to make Miami a true international world center, known for its great natural beauty, culture and amenities. We have come a long way in achieving our vision but have a lot to do. Gambling should not be part of that equation.
