so in the little town of fairview oregon they want to put a casino. what can i do to stop it i'm only one little person that has little money. (My opinion)
pros: it brings jobs to our horrible economy, and there is someplace to go and have fun
cons: the closure of mom and pop shops, (i lose my job). more gang violence. schools will lose more money then they have already lost. it would put more government workers out of a job. not to mention those how are addicted to gambling having an even harder time recovering.

I live in Oklahoma and our little town now has more than a dozen casinos within a few miles distance. Our gang violence did not increase but jobs have. Mom and pop shops did not close, but now more people shop at them since they are here to gamble. We have a lot more concerts in town now and there are nice restaurants in almost every casino. I don't gamble and haven't been to most of the casinos around here (the ones I have it has been to watch live bands or eat at the restaurants). It really hasn't hurt our town at all, if anything it's making our economy better for those who have enough sense to stay out of the casinos.
