From the Repeal the Casino Deal folks …

Shady land deals.

A corrupted licensing progress.

Calls for a new vote from the owners of Suffolk Downs.

It’s a mess.

We are now less than four weeks away from a Yes on Question 3 to stop the casino mess.

This week was a busy week for us at Repeal the Casino Deal. We released the findings on the devastating impact on local aid for cities and towns with the introduction of casino gambling. The casinos are taking aim at our lottery – which distributes nearly $1 billion back to cities and towns in the form of local aid.

What does that mean for you and for me? Less money for police officers and fire fighters, fewer dollars for road repair and snow removal.

According to our broad analysis, all 351 cities and towns across the Commonwealth will be affected. Even if a casino is miles away, the cuts to local aid will affect your community.

No town is immune. It’s imperative for us to get this message to each and every community in the Commonwealth-from Provincetown to North Adams and all points in between. We need you now.

Casinos are bad for communities, bad for families, bad for us all. Recent polling has shown us closing the gap. Our message is resonating, but we need to finish strong.

Thank you for your support!

John Ribeiro, chairman
