SUPPORT STILL NEEDED FOR SB 744-SLOTS AT THE RACE TRACK
Horsemen and Racing Fans:
SB 744 is just one signature away from final passage and we need your support. Governor Quinn continues to say that he wants to hear your opinion on this bill. The Governor states that there are three ways for our collective voice to be heard and to show support for SB 744.
First, there is public poll going on at http://bit.ly/PollGamblingBGAJuly2011. This poll measures how people feel about gaming expansion and a Chicago casino. It is important to vote yes on both questions.
Secondly, e-mail Governor Quinn detailing why we need SB 744 passed. Let him know that our entire horse industry needs support to continue functioning on a competitive level in this industry. E-mail Governor Quinn by using the following link: http://www2.illinois.gov/gov/Pages/ContacttheGovernor.aspx.
Thirdly, if you haven’t mailed a letter to Governor Quinn’s office it is important that you do so. The address is:
Honorable Governor Patrick Quinn
222 South College Street
Springfield, Illinois 62076
In this letter please put down your work experience in the horse racing industry, tell him why it is important to pass this bill, and include your address.
We have come this far, let us not give up. Show your support for SB 744 and the Illinois Thoroughbred horse racing industry by contacting Governor Quinn and tell him Yes!!!
Serving the finest people we know, the horsemen of Illinois,
Michael B. Campbell
President, Illinois Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association
