P.G.’s consultant on casino has ties to harbor developer
This week, the trade group announced that it had filed a motion in Prince George’s Circuit Court seeking an injunction after it failed to get response to an open records request with the county. The group sought a host of gambling-related documents from the county government, including information about the consulting firm study.
“Our biggest fear is that these documents, every email personal schedule and phone logs, will be destroyed in an attempt to cover up what could be improprieties by National Harbor and county officials,” Sharon Roberts, executive director of the association, said in a statement.
In a phone interview Wednesday, Ms. Roberts also said the group had concerns about the consulting firm’s ties to Gaylord Entertainment, saying the study leaned strongly to National Harbor.
Ms. Mossburg referenced the ties between Gaylord and the consulting firm in a column in the Baltimore Sun this week that called on state officials to take more time before deciding on gambling at National Harbor.
She said Andrew Moody, president of the consulting firm hired by Prince George’s, had told her that firm worked for Gaylord back in 2004 on a report about National Harbor.
The consulting firm does not list Penn National as a client on its website, but has Gaylord Entertainment as one of three clients listed in the casino and hospitality industry.
