To the editor:
I want to commend Mayor Snyder for his presentation
of the truth about gambling.
For the small percentage of revenue we might (or might not)
receive, the impact of money being lost by individuals and families
looking for a quick fix to their financial situation is already
incredibly detrimental to our town without gambling being added into
the mix. The cultural trend to get something for nothing -- to get
paid for not working -- is an erosion of our economy, not a help.
And also, the families who are struggling financially who will go
under because of this are seldom mentioned.
[to top of second column in this letter]
The joy and satisfaction of a job well-done is unknown to many of
our adults as well as teens.
I urge the city council to vote "NO" on this proposal.
Retired children's minister
