Letter: Casinos In Nassau?

My name is Giancarlo Pagliara and I am a resident of Glen Cove and freshman at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. While researching a school project I learned about a disturbing issue, casinos.

 

Senator Dean Skelos is lobbying to bring a casino to Long Island, specifically in Nassau County. Casinos will only bring hardship to our community, they will raise the crime levels in Nassau County and introduce gambling addictions to our families. Why should we let this happen? The answer is, we shouldn’t!

 

The governor has proposed three casino sites upstate. This kind of plan may work for upstate New York, but it will certainly destroy the suburban feel of our communities on Long Island. I want to encourage everyone to raise the awareness of this enraging situation. Please take a minute to look at a group page I joined against casinos on Long Island on Facebook, search for N-RAGED.  

 

thank you for taking the time to read about this important yet, unpublicized problem that is coming to our home county.

Giancarlo Pagliara
