Time for casino talk is over

June 20, 2013

Dear Sir,

We’ve had all the discussion and consulting we need. The PLP, as they did with Term Limits, have done a lot of the legwork with regard to casinos.

As long as we institute good legislation, law, regulations, and policy, we should be good to go on the issue of casinos.

We’ve said it over and over again, or suggested, that like Puerto Rico and other Islands to our South, we employ locals to work in a casino, but do not permit locals to gamble in the local casino, thus eliminating the element of crime and addiction at home. Lest we forget, at present we have access to on line gambling, Bingo, Crown and Anchor, the inevitable domestic card game, and very easy access to the likes of Foxwoods and Las Vegas.

When casinos finally do appear, I’d say they should only be able to operate in the larger hotels as simply another means of entertainment; under a larger “umbrella” presently consisting of room sales, food and beverage and other forms of entertainment already in place.

PUT IT ON NUMBER FIVE
