This was posted yesterday, but wanted to bump it up. Everyone get on this site and let Gov. Quinn know that we need for him to sign the bill as passed.

When calling/contacting the Gov,tell him to sign AS PASSED.Any change,even if track slots are not affected will doom the bill.

    The slots at the fairs were only supported by 2 representatives, it doesnt carry much clout other than with the two who requested that amendment be put in the bill to garner their support.
     After listening to the Governor yesterday, this is a major deal breaker with him. Hes NOT against slots at the tracks nor against a casino in Chicago.
     As of this writing.... the casinos are flooding the phone lines and e-mails with opposition to the bill. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that you e-mail and write the Governor a letter requesting that he sign sb 744 for horseracing . To not participate in this simply means you dont care if horse racing no longer exists in Illinois...Please dont let the casinos beat us for the last and FINAL time!!!!!!!

Also spoke with one of new chgo alderman who basically  said the same. This person has had a long term association with Quinn and feels the airport slots is a concern. But is OK with slots at track and Chitown casino.

Therefore even more reason to continue to call Quinn.

There must have been a lot of pressure to get the casino in Chicago.  I live in Elgin, (no I don't go to the Grand Vic ever) and Noland voted PRESENT for the casino bill.

I wrote to the Springfield address mentioned in this thread.  The Arlington Park website has a different address.  I assume it will get there either way.

Seems like more groups are listing the Springfield address, that's what Arlington has too so they may have changed it.

 Anyone find it ironic that almost immediately after the slot bill was passed and held by Cullerton that Quinn began sending out letters soliciting donations for his re-election campaign? Sounds like he should perhaps be sharing the spotlight with Blago.... head shake

Moops is just a trool Dan preying on people like us who actually give a sh*t about Illinois Horse Racing...pretty low on the food chain in my mind and I usually take the high road, even with a-holes.

Yes, you do and it had better be a positive say.  Otherwise, your groom days may be over at Fairmount and anywhere else in Illinois.

Don't confuse negativity with being realistic.  Aren't you a reporter or something?

    I think actually your a stall cleaner and probably not at FP. There are not many grooms at FP if any and Im sure your not one of those few who know what a groom actually does.

Our letters seem to have to have been filed in the circular filing cabinet.

Unstick this thread.  It was and is a waste of time and paper to send anything to this Governor.  Maybe you can retitle it as letters to the legislature if that will do any good.

I REPEAT:  UNSTICK THIS THREAD!  This thread was established with the idea that a mind can be changed with logic.  We now know that mind was closed to us all along and all this writing/calling was a waste of time.  The subject line of this thread is a cruel joke and needs to disappear.  Please!
