JEFFERSON CITY - Voters will decide April 8th whether to approve a new casino in
Jefferson City. The Missouri Gaming Commission held a public meeting at the
capitol this week to hear comments in favor and in opposition to the proposal.
Opinions seemed split fairly evenly.
Len Stella, a gambling supporter, said "The ultimate good that I feel comes from
it is the financial benefit to the city. Which affects everybody that owns a
home, rents a house, who lives here, because what it does in plain speaking is
stabilizes the financial tax situation."
However, a gambling opponent, Ben Clark, said "I think that there is enough
gambling around in the area. There's already enough boats within driving
distance to do whatever people want to do. If they want to gamble that's their
problem, but I don't think they need to bring that here in Jefferson City."
