Score One For the Residents of Jackson County ~ Board of Aldermen Vote to Oppose Casino Gaming

The Board of Aldermen voted Tuesday to reaffirm its resolution opposing casino gaming in Ocean Springs and Jackson County. The motion was made by board member Matt McDonnell and seconded by board member James Hagan.

Board members held a lengthy discussion about the proposed Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians casino project on Mississippi 57 in Ocean Springs.

At least someone is listening to the residents of Jackson County who do not want casino gaming. The residents of Jackson County have consistently voted AGAINST gaming in their County. The Choctaws have no right to try to ram it down our throats. If they want a casino on the Mississippi Gulf Coast they are free to put a casino in Harrison or Hancock County. Counties that voted FOR legalized gaming.
