Comment on State College Community Speaks Out in Opposition of Bally’s Casino Near Penn State by Steve Smith

The choice to reject this effort to open a casino in College Township should be simple. There is overwhelming community opposition. If this is allowed over this considerable opposition, then what is the point of representative democracy? The PGCB needs to be able to read the landscape and reject this, both for the community’s sake and it’s own reputation. Further, if this is approved, then the community will have to use its resources to continue to fight, because a casino in this community will fundamentally alter the quality of life for the worse in “Happy” Valley.
