Kenosha Casino Archives Local News I Racine County Eye ...

BREAKING Milwaukee Arena / Kenosha Casino news.

If Walker reverses his decision on the Kenosha Casino the Tribes involved will give $200 million for the Milwaukee Arena. This needs to happen. I disliked his decision to begin with but now we would be idiots for not going for this.

Walker is bungling the Kenosha Casino project. His leadership skills are in question and he's pissing off his base.

He is coming off as a weak and ineffective leader. Say what you will of ACT 10, but at least he was bold, confident, and stuck to his guns.
Instead of making a damn decision on this casino, he decided to come up with some (ridiculous) "criteria,"... ok. We'll, drag it out a few weeks while tribes negotiate and both sides jockey for public opinion. Wull, turns out they can't meet the criteria so, no casino, right?
Welll... no, actually, maybe he'll still go for it because jobs and public popularity. Okay, well then say that you've re-evaluated (thrown out) the criteria and have come up with a solution that is best for Wisconsin.. But no, instead we get these bizarre daily update letters, describing what a complicated, difficult decision it is... But at least we'll get an answer "soon," like this week, so we can all move on.
But no, now we learn we're going to stretch this bitch out "for up to several months." wtf, make a decision.
Personally, I think the potawatomi are crooks/thugs and WI would benefit from the development/competition. But beyond that, I'm pissed that this has played out like it has. Why was it such a difficult decision for the governor in the first place? He supposedly has a jobs jobs jobs agenda - okay, then build the casino. Ever since ACT 10 he and WI legislature have been on this cumbaya, don't rock the boat bullshit.
Yes. I am aware that potawatomi donates to his campaign, as they do to every candidate/governor.
edit: letters
and
I just spoke with a coworker who brought up an interesting point. He said that he believes, if it were up to walker, there wouldn't be any legal gambling in WI - he just opposes it because gambling. He thinks it will mean more poor old ladies will loose their medication money at the dirty rotten casino. So, looking through that lens, I suppose I can see why he set unrealistic criteria and is dragging this along and really doesn't want to see it happen. the reality is, no matter how much he doesn't like it, the gambling bell can't be un-rung. Casinos will always be allowed in WI - feds have determined that with the whole sovereign land deal.

An email that I sent to Walker about the Casino

Why is Scott Walker making such poor decisions for Wisconsin taxpayers?
I am sure that this will go right in the deleted folder of the Assistant to the Secretary of the Secretary of Public Affairs, or whoever reads his emails, but I've got to try. Anyway, here is what I wrote:
"Governor Walker, I was a very big supporter of yours from your time as county exec, up through the last election. However, your decision to refuse to reconsider the Menominee tribe's latest offer has not only made me decide that I could not support you as President, I could not even support you for Governor. In fact, I am considering actively working with whoever your opponent is to defeat you. This is coming from a lifelong Republican (I am sure that my name is on the WI GOP mailing lists for a reason - you can look that up, I gave you my contact info). I have heard rumors that the tribe rescinded their offer of a huge bond or escrow account to back up their promise to cover any potential losses to Potawatomi, but have not seen any evidence of this. If this isn't true, you actually took an opportunity to make BOTH the Milwaukee and Kenosha areas happy (new arena and new casino),and protect the state from liability and gave them new reasons to vote against you. While I disagree with this particular decision, my real reason for now be against you is more profound.
I question your decision making abilities and the influences on your decision making. You took a scenario with virtually no risk and a high potential of reward for at least two different counties, a desperate tribe, and the state taxpayers, and you made a decision that is a potential lose/lose/lose/lose/lose. The Menominee Tribe lose much needed revenue. Milwaukee potentially loses the Bucks. Kenosha loses the casino. Wisconsin loses the potential revenue. And you lose both your election to President and re-election to Governor. Remember, only 2 out of 44 presidents managed to get elected President without winning their home state. You won the last election by about 140,000 votes in a non-Presidential cycle. Even if more Democrat-leaning people don't come out, as normally occurs in presidential election cycles, are you confident that 10% or less of your previous supporters is like me? And do you think that you gained any new voters by this decision? You didn't like the odds for the state coming out in the positive due to the casino. How do you like your odds of becoming President????
If I were you, I would hope that the tribe comes back with ANYTHING to sweeten the pot further. Then, you can take it and come off as being a tough negotiator and make it a win/win/win/win/win. Otherwise, listen to the taxpayers from your OWN state, NOT THE POTOWATOMI or your new BEST FRIENDS in IOWA and elsewhere around the country, and take the deal before its too late, and Illinois comes out the winner."
If you agree with what I wrote, I strongly urge that you email him yourself at [email protected] . Copy whatever you want from what I wrote if you want, I don't care. Just make sure that there is enough identifying information to show that it is from someone else. Let's make this a MOVEMENT!!!
Tl;dr Walker's being an idiot

What do you guys thing of the casino debate in this state?

So there are proposals for new casino/hotel projects in a number of Wisconsin communities: Beloit, Kenosha, Sheboygan, & Shullsburg.
Native American Tribes maintain a legal Monolopy on gaming in WI. Astonishingly, current gaming establishments in the state (Patawatomi for example) have a well-funded opposition to any/all new casino projects. They have a media campaign claiming that new casinos from "out-of-state" have proven to be "corrupt" and "harmful" to WI. They cite studies that show the gaming market in WI is saturated and that any future gaming development would just be redistributing gambling dollars (as opposed to tapping new markets) and end up in a net-loss for WI.
It appears, for the most part, people in these communities are in support of these projects, citing the need for economic development.
WI gaming establishments have been criticized, poorly rated for having low payouts compared to similar establishments in other states. The limited number of establishments in WI have allowed tribes to forgo competitive practices like promotions, higher payout rates, and high-quality food & entertainment.
Do we have enough casinos? Too many? Are you happy w the quality? What do you guys think??
