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."

It's my bet that Ohio conservatives will flush another opportunity to be competitive by showing their self righteous hand and calling KY on their economic bluff to join the new milleninium where gambling is an acceptable past time.

It's my bet that the public payroll in N KY will increase proportionly with Police,Fire,social services and patronage jobs too!! Not to mention the boom in buisness for Phyliss on Madison!!

The problem is with the way Hamilton County and the City of Cincinnati develop things (IE:The Banks, Fountain Square) Gambling will be well footed in Northern Kentucky before the debating in the county and city even begin. That is what happens when you have true leadership, not PPD government in the county and lifetime elected in the city.
