A good way to wreck the economy Build casinos

Casinos are the road to destruction. Living in Elgin, I see the effects. Grand Victoria casino was opened twenty years ago, and yet downtown Elgin is largely a ghost town, with only government agencies or subsidized nonprofits (Habitat for Humanity, etc.) occupying many of the store fronts. Where are the jobs, the economic improvement? Not in the hands of Elgin residents, that’s for sure.
