Out-of-towners should stay out of our business

The Gazette Opinion Staff

The day of decision (in Linn County) is fast approaching and I see where the Waterloo casino people have crawled out of their holes and are going to help fund Just Vote No.

Why can’t these out-of-towners keep their noses out of Linn County and Cedar Rapids business? We even have college professors nosing in. We have church groups trying to tell us what we need or don’t need plus what we should do or not do. We don’t tell them that they shouldn’t go to church.

I believe that either of the proposed sites chosen should be good areas for our new casino and would help revitalize all of Cedar Rapids.

By the way, I took a trip to Waterloo and Tama to check out all the prostitutes that their casinos brought to town, but couldn’t find them. Also tried to find the Godfather, since the casinos brought organized crime with them. Funny, I couldn’t find him either. Tells me this is another propaganda tactic by Just Vote No.
