We’re not too subtle here and today’s show was in that mold. Kathleen Conley Norbut, founder and head of United to Stop Slots in MA and Kelly Marcimo, board member of the MA League of Women Voters joined us. We’re all against casinos and other expanded gambling here, even as a short-term palliative for our extreme recession.
Despite comments from several of our recent politician guests, Norbut and Marcimo do not cede racinos, casinos and other gambling as fait accompli. They talk about the secret downsides of gambling in its economic effects and societal costs.
TheÂ UUS-MA will highlight and explain the issues at a press conference at the State House tomorrow, 3/31, at 1 p.m. in room 1-B.
Listen in to hear the myriad negative impacts and permanent changes to Massachusetts should the General Court move in favor of expanding gambling to casinos.
