Casinos Are Winning. We Need to Fight.

WWLP 22 News reported today that Massachusetts voters are leaning toward keeping the Casinos in Massachusetts according to poll released today (October 1) that 52% of voters will vote NO on Question # 3 to Keep Casinos.   41% plan to vote against casinos by voting Yes on Question #3.  The remaining respondents to the poll are undecided.     Today, WWLP 22 News called me to discuss off air Project Furious 2014 and the vote for question # 3.    Many people are have the misunderstanding that voters will not allow casinos to stay in Massachusetts, but the polls say differently.    There are enough voters who won't live near a casino and won't be impacted.   They don't know what the long term effects are for the entire state.

On September 18 it was reported that the Massachusetts unemployment rate jumped from 5.6% up to 5.8% as of July 2014.   At a time when unemployment has ticked up, do we really want the voting residents of Massachusetts to spend wasteful dollars on Casinos at a time when casinos are closing all over the country?   In Connecticut, the Mayor of Ledyard (home of Foxwoods) said that there has been "no economic development spin-off from (Foxwoods).  Businesses do not come here".    Connecticut has proven that casinos doesn't spurt the growth of commerce in their communities.   Even worse, Moody's has downgraded the outlook on casinos down to negative and Firth Ratings have said the casino market is "reaching a saturation point".    The Governor of Massachusetts (Gov. Deval Patrick), Speaker DeLeo, and Senate President Murray have expressed that they do not want a casino in their home towns.   Why should we?    The former CEO of American Gaming said he would "work very, very hard against" a casino in his home town.  

On November 4, vote YES on Question # 3 which would prohibit casinos, any gaming establishment with slot machines, and wagering on simulcast greyhound races.   When we say NO to Casinos, we say YES to Question 3.   Vote on November 4th.  God bless you and the people of Massachusetts.   Learn more by clicking the links below.   Our old slogan was "Share if you care".  Our new slogan is "Don't make me say I told you so".   See below and please share.
