Rob Walgate, 440-572-1796
Strongsville, OH - Rob Walgate, Vice-President of the Ohio Roundtable, issued the following statement today in response to the Lakes Entertainment signature collection.
“The Ohio Constitution was not designed to be a tool for private companies to set up exclusive monopolies and drag money out of Ohio. The Lakes Entertainment casino proposal is the worst of the four casino issues that have been placed before Ohio voters. We urge all Ohioans to carefully read the language of the amendment, which they can find at www.votenocasinos.com.”
The Roundtable has helped lead successful campaigns against expanded gambling in Ohio in 1990, 1996 and 2006. The Ohio Roundtable, a division of the American Policy Roundtable, is a non-profit, non-partisan public policy organization founded in 1980.
