It would be effective to have representatives from the various nonprofit organizations in Washington County, that have benefited from the financial support of the Washington County Riverboat Foundation, speak at the public hearing at the Double Tree and tell their stories about the negative impact a new casino in Cedar Rapids would have on small towns in Washington County.

I would drive the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle to the Dublin City Pub rally in Cedar Rapids at let them know that Washington is serious about it's opposition to the proposed casino. 


Cedar Rapids casino supporters are invited to a pep rally to gear up for the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission site visit.

It will be held on April 2 at the Dublin City Pub from 5-7 p.m.

On April 3, the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission meets in Cedar Rapids for a site visit. Casino investors will also take commissioners on a tour of the west side to show them how a casino could help the area rebuild.

Commissioners will also hold a public comment on April 3. That will be at 10 a.m. at the DoubleTree downtown.
