Rensselaer is hoping for some neighborly support for a proposed Hard Rock Casino in the city.

Rensselaer Mayor Dan Dwyer says he's had numerous conversations with Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan.

He says the two have talked about job training for Albany residents, joint marketing efforts to promote Albany’s entertainment venues and revenue sharing.

The Hard Rock is one of four casinos proposed in the Capital Region.    

Only one will be chosen.

That decision is expected in the fall.
