Jamulians Against the Casino...

On Thursday, June 6, there was a meeting of Jamul residents opposed to the construction of the Jamul Indian Casino, organized as “Jamulians Against the Casino”.  Debbie and I are adamantly opposed, but we missed the meeting.  Our neighbor Marisa S. passed along the organization's email newsletter, which is full of linky goodness:

Union Tribune - Residents decry Jamul casino plan
Not here. Not now. Not ever.
That was the message, delivered in a variety of ways by dozens of Jamul residents Wednesday night at a well attended meeting about the casino planned for the Jamul Indian Village.

Penn National Gaming Management Contract
Penn National Gaming stated they wanted to work with the community? They submitted the application for their gaming contract in April 2013 with "NO PUBLIC INPUT". We are past the submission date for comments to the NIGC and Department of the Interior in Washington D.C.
It is now in front of the Sacramento BIA office for consideration.
"Written comments on the scope and implementation of this proposal and/or alternatives must arrive by Monday, July 8, 2013.No public scoping meeting will be held for the proposal given the long history of the project and the extensive public input received to-date."
Again, " public scoping meeting will be held for this SEIS."
Guess Penn National Gaming didn't want anymore PUBLIC INPUT.
They don't know who they are dealing with!!!
