Doubts on Casino Growing Stronger...

Friends, our persistence is getting the message across. Thank you.

From the Opinion Section of The Argus...

Hancock says it's "a bad idea for the state, East Bay and city of San Pablo." She rightfully says that the intent of state ballot measures approved in 1998 and 2000 was to locate casinos on tribal lands where they would be economic engines for tribes seeking to escape poverty.

Hancock has submitted a bill to delay legislative approval of gambling compacts until 60 days after they're negotiated. She's also adopted this newspaper's stance that expansion of gambling into urban areas should be put to a public vote. That remains fair given the intent and wording of the original ballot measures.
