Just A Thought

I just wanted to bring a matter of great concern to your attention. In recent weeks, several State Sponsored Lottery Bills have quietly made their way through the legislative system in Montgomery. We dare not sit back and think this doesn’t have a chance to pass. That’s what proponents want us to do. Many others are using the excuse, why not let the people vote! They have seen the economic impact studies outlining how “quick-fix” gimmicks like this don’t work and have an adverse effect on families and the economy. Yet, they turn a deaf ear to the truth. Then they say, all I hear from is those who want it. That’s where we must speak-up and make our opposition known. If you don’t speak up, then don’t complain if/when it comes to pass. Be blessed, be one and speak up.
