New Sioux City Casino Manager Hire Defended
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - The developer of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City on Friday defended the hiring of general manager Todd Moyer, who has come under scrutiny after being fired from his previous casino job.
The Sioux City Journal reports that Moyer was fired as general manager of the Diamond Jo Casino in Dubuque, Iowa, after being accused of shoving a subordinate and using public profanity. A three-member board under the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission also suspended Moyer's gaming license for 30 days.
The president of Sioux City Entertainment, which is developing the new downtown Sioux City casino, says Moyer disclosed those facts as he was being considered for the new casino's general manager job. Bill Warner also says Moyer will bring "energy and drive" to his new job.
