Opposition to the planned casino in Rohnert Park has repeatedly sought help from our County Supervisors in the form a ballot initiative that would allow voters to register concerns about the impact of a WalMart-sized gamble-opolis on their quality of life…all to no avail. Despite the fact that similar ballot initiatives in other parts of the state have resulted in substantially reduced casinos (merely the size of a Target store), Sonoma County Supervisors seem unable or unwilling to support such an effort here. Perhaps it’s because they’re focused on more important issues such as increased traffic, rising crime and alcohol abuse, excessive impact on the environment? Nah. Can’t be that, because if they were worried about those issues, they’d be as concerned about the consequences of the planned Rohnert Park casino as are its future neighbors.
