Public debate on gambling suits me fine
Thanks for your reply to my comments regarding video bingo. Just to make it very clear how I stand on this issue, I am not opposed at all with video bingo being anywhere in rhe parish.
Why should I care if this business is two blocks from my home. My life will not be affected no matter where they are located.
What is your point in asking a question about being close to my home? Do you think it would be a crime center? Absolutely not. I could care less where they locate.
I read your ordinance on public input. Why didn't you have a town hall meeting to discuss the issue? You had plenty of time.
You have made some contradicting statements when you say you are not opposed to gaming but you voted not to allow video gaming. Now, which one is it? Just tell me and other residents just why you and other council members voted to outlaw video bingo. No one has said. Just give one good reason.
I wouldn't mind having a good public debate on this subject. and the way it looks we are having one in the newspaper which suits me fine. Then we could take a poll and see which way the wind blows.
I would like to hear from readers on their opinions. My e-mail address is email@example.com. I urge readers to drop me a line and give me your thoughts, either pro or con,
By the way, I have an after thought. What is this about having the public pay for gambling addiction or rehab? I sure didn't know that was the case. Just give me some specifics of where and when this happens. Or are you talking about alcoholics and drug addicts?
I know a friend of mine who almost lost his family because of video poker. He was severely addicted. But he did not require government assistance.
My opinion is that this matter will end up in court.
