Optically, it looked packed. The opposition was Loud. The opposition failed to understand the economics of our area. They were concerned about change & what could come with it.
Unfortunately, If we don't change, we will have empty box stores & more depressed economy.
For the record:
For: 12 speakers and 53 letters & 156 on the petition & 14 in favor opposition petition
Against: 26 speakers and 18 letters & over 1000 on the petition

Do you know that Caernarvon Berks was not the only local jurisdiction that did not Opt-out? There is every likelihood that if the Casino doesn't get approved for Caernarvon that it could be put in New Morgan, Cumru or Robeson Townships. https://gamingcontrolboard.pa.gov/files/legislation/cat4_opt-out_county.pdf
