Community voices

In today’s Contra Costa Times, a letter to the editor from Jeanne Bruns of Richmond states:
“No slots, please.

I live within one mile of Casino San Pablo and hope the casino is left as is.

Please, don't allow the 2,500 slots to be put in there. It will destroy this area with traffic, crime, trash and some gamblers who can't afford to lose their rent money.”

Thank you to Jeanne Bruns for organizing, and expressing herself about this controversial project. Jeanne and other member of our community are the reasons that I am holding a town hall hearing on Casino San Pablo and urban gambling next Saturday, January 22, at the Knox Theatre at Contra Costa College from 10:00am to 2:00pm. Join me and give your views on the proposed expansion of Casino San Pablo.
