As a citizen of Wisconsin, I oppose casino expansion. Studies continue to show that gambling promotes an increase in crime, contributes to the destruction of families and comes with some sizeable costs to taxpayers. I believe that Casinos erode the quality of life, make our community less safe and negatively impact local businesses. In general, increasing casinos in Wisconsin is not in the best interest of our families or our state.
With 24 casinos already in operation in the State of Wisconsin, access to gambling is not an issue. No one is over a two-hour drive to an existing casino.
