We hope that today’s “READERS FORUM” will provoke honest and open dialogue concerning issues that we, as responsible citizens of this community, need to address in a rational and responsible way.
HERE’S WHAT’S ON OUR MIND TODAY
The Indy Star just reported that the leader of the Indiana House is skipping votes on a major gambling-related bill after a casino owner helped arrange a local government contract with his law firm?
The Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma is doing legal work for the Vigo County Capital Improvement Board, which is among the entities supporting the bill that includes allowing a proposed Terre Haute casino, The Indianapolis Star reported?
Over several year’s government watchdogs groups have expressed concerns that changes made to casino gaming laws were seemingly motivated by donations to the right political persons or political groups? we wonder why one of these governmental watchdog groups hasn’t asked the proper law enforcement authorities to look into any possible wrongdoing by anyone in involved in the writing this recently approved casino legislation.
The only local State Representative who voted against the controversial gaming bill was Ryan Hatfield (D) from Evansville.
Oh, please take time and read the new “LEFT JAB, RIGHT JAB” article, sit back, and watch CCO posters Ronald Reagan and Joe Biden intellectually slug it out on national issues that might interest you.
