Yes Currently Chicago is losing millions of dollars to neighboring states which allow state regulated gaming. I am open to considering proposals which address the full range of issues associated with gaming including public safety

I would prefer to generate revenue for the city through other means rather than a casino. If I were to consider casino gambling, there would have to be very strict parameters established to gain my support for it in the city. As a global city, I believe that we potentially could offer casino gambling as a very small feature among many options for our visitors, and limit it to high traffic tourist areas—particularly McCormick Place. There are already discussions about a new hotel there to accommodate convention-goers; I envision such a hotel being an appropriate place to consider casino gambling, as it would be much more oriented toward serving tourists rather than Chicagoans. I would only support it in a very restricted way and in consultation with our residents.
