    We have casinos in CT which are doing ok for the state - as new casinos have opened up in better locations such as Mohegan Sun in PA. Profits have reduced for CT but MoheganSun has diversified & is gaining because the PA location is located in Prime Tourist Region that PA promotes CT Needs to Promote & Develop our Tourist Locations & add transportation to support Tourist Destinations like Casinos

    While I understand the dangers of gambling, I also understand that some people enjoy it. I believe that this is an economic development opportunity for Indianapolis, and I would support the very careful expansion of gambling and even casinos in our city.

    I believe that gambling can be a drain on society. However, in a free society people have the right to do as they please. I wouldn't agree with putting casinos on every corner. I believe that here in California, the current combination of poker casinos and Indian casinos meets California's gaming needs, without going overboard.
