Action Alert

Gov. Strickland,

I was disappointed to learn of your plans to expand the state’s presence in the gambling industry by adding a keno game to Ohio’s lottery operations, and I hope you will reconsider the idea.

As a member of the Center for Moral Clarity, I believe this proposal is ill-advised for the same reasons that adding slot machines to horse-racing tracks was worthy of your opposition in 2006. Gambling is shown to damage marriages and families, and ultimately costs the state in crime-fighting and welfare costs. The state should not be part of sponsoring this activity. I understand the need to meet Ohio’s anticipated budget shortfall, but would respectfully request that you find another way to help Ohio meet its financial obligations.

Thank you for considering my opinion.
