Learn more about the gambling question

I have noticed that an awful lot of skirting of the issue is being conducted by both groups for and against Amendment 33, the gambling question that would put video slot terminals at the state’s five dog tracks.

Neither group comes right out and tells us exactly what it is and how it works. Neither one explains that we would be giving a British gaming company a monopoly in our state.

I went to the Colorado Freedom Web site at http://www.co-freedom.com/2003/09/33.html and got more information than I have seen on TV or on the radio.

I was previously in favor of it, now I am not quite sure. I think I still need more info before I can definitely say “yes” or “no” on this issue.

Time is running out, I urge my fellow Summit County residents to do their homework before they decide by what they see on TV or hear on the radio.
