Citizens deserve right to decide about casinos

Forsyth County News

Georgia’s unemployment rate is higher than the national average, and it’s even higher for veterans.

We, the citizens of Georgia, deserve the opportunity to decide if destination resort casinos are the right choice to drive our economy and create more jobs.

We’re seeing our fellow Georgians visit casinos in neighboring states, spending money in their casinos, restaurants and hotels. These other states are reaping the benefits, not us. 

We want the economic opportunities created by destination resort casinos to stay in Georgia.

Casinos would bring new jobs to Georgia and create a new stream of tax revenue for the HOPE Scholarship, a program that is of the utmost importance to Georgian families and to the future of all of us. 

We want the opportunity to decide what is right for the future of Georgia.
