âThe Portland area will be getting a casino in the next
few years and we believe it is better on our side of the river, paying
taxes, creating jobs and providing revenue for our public schools.
We will make the necessary changes in our measures as we prepare for
2012 and we believe Oregonians will rally around the need for job
creation and revenue for schools.
As Oregonians are more informed about plans for a mega-casino just
across the river in Washington that will take jobs and revenue out of
the state, Oregonians will want the opportunity to vote on a tax-paying
casino here in Oregon in 2012.â
