Portune may support gambling idea
Hamilton County Commission President Todd Portune said he may support Cincinnati City Councilman Jeff Berding's proposal to allow casino gambling in Ohio.
"It sounds like a very measured and thoughtful response to Kentucky's aggressive moves," Portune said in an e-mail response to Berding's suggestion. "I have been generally supportive of gambling and could support your proposal. I will see what the general mood is of our Board on this. It may be that we would like to have some sort of presentation at a county staff meeting and, if so, could you arrange for that to happen? Thanks for considering us on this matter."
