The Daily Journal of Commerce reported this afternnon that the move to start a petition to get a non-tribe casino at Wood Village is much closer. It is being sold as a job stimilus project.
Here is the Oregon off reservation casino article;
“Lake Oswego businessmen Matt Rossman and Bruce Studer think they’re close to getting a ballot initiative to construct Oregon’s first nontribal casino and resort at the former Multnomah Greyhound Park in Wood Village.Rossman is getting 1,200 signatures to file his initiative for a world class gaming resort with Oregon’s secretary of state. After that, the secretary will decide whether Rossman and Studer can begin collecting the 100,000 signatures they need to get their project on the 2010 ballot. Rossman said Oregon’s current double digit unemployment makes an ideal climate for his project to be pushed forward.”
What are the odds of this happening?
