WHEN LAME DUCKS ATTACK...
ACTION ALERT: STOP STREET'S AND RAMOS' BILL ON JUNE 13TH
Casino-Free Philadelphia calls on supporters to gather at City Hall on June 13th to demand that City Council vote against zoning bills legalizing the construction of SugarHouse casino within two- hundred feet of a residential community.
At the same City Council Rules Committee hearing, we will ask them to send the 1,500-foot buffer zone - supported by the majority of Philadelphians - to council for passage. In our Philly's Ballot Box election, 95% of the voters expressed their support of this buffer.
The pro-SugarHouse bills were introduced by a lame-duck at-large Councilman at the request of a lame-duck Mayor and Sugarhouse and in direct contradiction of the overwhelming public consensus that casinos do not belong in residential neighborhoods.
With your help, we can and will make a difference on the outcome of this vote.
SugarHouse will pack the house in an attempt to create the illusion that the public supports casinos in neighborhoods. It is absolutely imperative that our supporters show up and let the voice of the majority be heard.
What: Committee on Rules Meeting
Where: City Hall, Room 400
When: Wednesday, June 13, 2007, 9:00 AM
(Please note: this is a change from the original date, June 6th.)
