Breaking news

Popular U.S. Senator John McCain is joining our fight against the San Pablo Casino, and casino sprawl so many communities like ours are facing in their own backyard.

The AP is running with the story, and the Contra Costa Times has more about it:
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., on Thursday said the Lytton Band of Pomo Indians should not have been allowed to skirt federal law to establish an urban casino in the Bay Area.

The tribe and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger have signed a compact for a 2,500-slot machine casino that awaits legislative approval.

McCain announced he would hold hearings on a bill by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., that would undo the legislation authored by Rep. George Miller, D-Martinez, in 2000 that allowed the tribe to buy 91/2 acres in San Pablo as a reservation for gambling.

Assemblywoman Loni Hancock, D-Berkeley, welcomed McCain's move.

"I think this is just another example of the rising tide of concern about urban gambling getting out of control, and operating in a way that was never expected by the (state's) voters when they voted for Prop. 1A enabling gambling on Indian reservations," Hancock said.

As this struggle 'goes national', we welcome the support of Senator McCain, and all who are willing to take a stand with us against this growing trend of backyard casino gambling. I'm amazed to see how this issue has grown larger and larger, thanks to your involvement and willingness, and know his help is going to be a boost to our efforts.
