Viewers sound off on proposed Kenosha casino
MILWAUKEE - On Thursday, we asked you to sound off on a proposed Kenosha casino. Our Facebook page held a poll to gauge viewer support.
Viewers were asked to "like" the post if they supported a casino in Kenosha. They were asked to "share" the post if they were opposed to the project.
476 viewers responded to the poll. The results?
460 were in favor of the casino being built. Only 16 were opposed.
Some of the best comments from our Facebook poll:
"We encourage a free market business model," says Deb Anderson. "If you are good at what you do, another casino can't hurt you. If you aren't, get better or get out. I'm all for it!"
"It's time to give the Potawanomi some competition in the area. They have a virtual monopoly and their customer treatment reflects that. - George Keen
"Kenosha NEEDS the jobs!!!" says Janie Clay. "We have lost far to many jobs here in the last 10 years!!!"
But not everyone thinks the casino is a great idea.
"No thank you. There are plenty of places hiring and more coming. I don't need my taxes going up for more police to patrol my quiet neighborhood and I sure don't want more traffic coming through here. Casinos bring crime." - Mary Cotillier
"Enough with the casino already," argues Nate William. "How about we just work on getting online poker legalized in Wisconsin like it is in Vegas!
