The Jackson County Board of Supervisors voted 3-1 to take a stand against the Choctaw Casino

The Jackson County Board of Supervisors voted 3-1 to take a stand against a casino proposed for the county by the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.

More than 60 percent of voters in the general election earlier this month came out against the casino. The referendum was taken to gauge voter opinion on the issue, but is not legally binding.

So supervisors Monday took a stand that reflects the vote.


At least someone heard us when we said NO. Jackson County residents should take note that Tim Broussard voted for the casino over the objections of the voters he is suppose to represent ( remember this at election time folks). Robert Norvel was absent.
