I am appalled at the advertising supporting “yes” on statewide Question 1 that we have been bombarded with – in the mail, in our newspapers, on yard signs and everywhere we turn.

We are promised millions of dollars for our schools, college scholarships, property tax relief and veterans assistance funds. And, oh yes, all those year-round permanent jobs.

Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? What’s barely mentioned is how all this is going to happen – by “establishing a gaming and entertainment venue in York County.”

What’s not mentioned is that this is casino gambling, run by one out-of-state entrepreneur (Shawn Scott), who has played this game years ago – that time, he immediately sold his rights to operate a casino and pocketed $51 million.

Let’s not be scammed again. Vote “no” on Question 1.
