Question 7: Keep jobs, money in Md.

We need to vote for Question 7. Table games will bring jobs to our state along with money for education. Do not let the opponents fool you. The people in office took the $350 million for other projects that was education money.

Casinos bring a lot of money into our state. Why is our own comptroller against gaming tables? Any tax collector in any other state would welcome the millions of dollars to be reaped from gaming tables and the slot machines.

I play the slots once a year in New Jersey. My brother comes from another state because he likes gaming tables. Why can't the money stay in our state? Yes, people can gamble the rent money away if they are stupid enough to do this. They already do it on the lottery.

Gerald Yamin, Pikesville
