Say no to a sixth casino

October 23, 2012

I cannot agree with letter writer Susan Beckwell of Bowie who suggested that we keep Maryland money in Maryland by approving a sixth casino at National Harbor which is being promoted by politicians from that area ("Question 7: Keep Maryland money in Maryland," Oct. 22).

If one wants to really keep Maryland money in Maryland, then I strongly recommend that we build the other two casinos already approved in Baltimore City and at Rocky Gap to go along with Arundel Mills, Ocean Downs and Perryville and then see if a sixth one along the Potomac River is warranted..

I have my doubts, since the Hollywood Casino Perryville just requested to reduce the number of their slots by one-third.

I highly recommend that we vote no on Question 7.
