5. Las Vegas-style casinos are no guarantees of continued success. If you don’t believe me, hop on I-95, drive up to Atlantic City, and see how well that’s working out for our neighbors to the north.
Of the five casinos that were approved just a few years ago, only three are operating (one of those for less than six months) and the Baltimore site has yet to even gain design approval.
As a business case, Maryland doesn’t need a sixth casino. As a revenue case, Question 7 may actually end up costing taxpayers money, not saving them money. As an education case, we should have already learned our lesson.
Vote No on Question 7.

Hagerstown Professional Firefighters PAC endorses five for council
To the editor:
The Hagerstown Professional Firefighters PAC has chosen five Hagerstown city council candidates to endorse in this year’s upcoming city election on Nov. 6.
After months of deliberation and candidate meetings, Don Munson, Lewis Metzner, Kristin Aleshire, Penny Nigh and Martin Brubaker are receiving the PAC’s endorsement. The candidates’ experience, commitment to excellence, and their strong public safety policies have merited this endorsement.
The Hagerstown Professional Firefighters Local 1605 established the Hagerstown Professional Firefighters Political Action Committee in 2012.
Its purpose is to educate, support and inspire its members and the community to be active in the political process while endeavoring to educate members of local government in the various aspects of the fire service, and to endorse those candidates who support a strong public safety policy.
