Delegation opposes expanding gambling


Pro-gambling legislators would be wise to forget about convincing Glynn County’s state delegation that Georgia is ready for legalized gambling.

It would be a losing bet.

“in the vast majority of cases, those who can least afford it and those who are most adversely affected by it are the citizens who fork over their money to gamble.” ~ Rep. Jeff Jones

State Sen. Sen. William Ligon and Reps. Alex Atwood and Jeff Jones, all St. Simons Island Republicans, are opposed to pari-mutuel betting and casinos.
