Yes I am in strong opposition to video gambling because of the social costs associated with having such temptation within easy reach in every bar in Chicago. I don’t want to enable so many
Chicagoans to so easily gamble away their paychecks. Additionally, I believe that the video gambling legislation that was passed at the state level is a bad deal for taxpayers; it won’t generate enough revenue. Nonetheless, I have called for an advisory referendum on video gambling because I think Chicago residents should debate the issue. I believe the voters would turn it down and the City Council would follow the voters’ lead.
