Black, Latino aldermen press Quinn to sign casino bill

Chicago Breaking News (of the Chicago Tribune) posted this news story
Latino and African American aldermen today prodded Gov. Pat Quinn to sign legislation that would allow Chicago to get a casino.

The City Council members said a casino would help create badly needed jobs for the city’s minorities because it would provide immediate construction work and eventual gambling jobs. And it would create other jobs over the long haul, they said, because Emanuel has promised to pump the casino’s profits into upgrading the city’s water mains, CTA lines, schools and roads.

While the SEIU greatly exaggerated Alderman Sawyer's response to a questionaire in the many many pieces of propaganda, how strongly is he in support of this? How about our state representatives and senator?

And how much are YOU in support of gambling in Chicago?

Look for an opinion piece on this soon.
