08.24.08 Stop Slots: What You Can Do
In other slots news, Maryland released this past week the actual language that will be on the ballot in November. Written by former racetrack lobbyist and current Secretary of State John P. McDonough, the language speaks volumes about how slots will (supposedly) provide a windfall for education. It just happens to leave out any mention of the $100 million subsidy slated for the horse racing industry. Both the Baltimore Sun and the Washington Post have editorialized against this misleading language. Slots opponents are considering filing suit to change it.
To weigh in against the language, contact the State Board of Elections: email@example.com / 410-269-2840.
To stop the Montgomery Democratic Party from endorsing the slots referendum (which, as we see from Ike Leggett’s position, is a strong possibility – see previous post): speak out at the Democratic Party’s hearing on ballot questions, September 2, 7:30pm at MCEA headquarters, 60 West Gude Drive, Rockville 20850. To register to speak, send an email to MontgomeryDems@msn.com, by no later than noon this Tuesday (8/26).
