After the 2 to 1 defeat of Issue 6 yesterday, backers of the proposition, Rick Lertzman and Brad Pressman, are considering ways to place another casino issue on next year's ballot. The new plan would propose several casino throughout the state including the Cleveland area.
"We have been talking to coalitions and groups in many parts of the state,
Clinton County, Cleveland, Toledo, Youngstown and Cincinnati, interested in
the effort for casinos," Rick Lertzman said,. "We learned a lot from Tuesday night's loss, and we'll address it."
The president of the anti-gambling Ohio Roundtable, Dave Zanotti, predicts another defeat. He said, "Addiction is a terrible thing and obviously these guys are addicted to the ballot process, and they need help," Zanotti said. "We think that it will be defeated by the same 60 percent of voters that have defeated it the last four times."
