Permissible Gaming Veto

FRESNO, CA (June 14, 2005) – Today the Fresno City Council sustained Mayor Autry’s veto of an ordinance that would expand gambling within the City.

Mayor Autry after receiving news of the vote stated “I commend the Council who held firm on this ordinance, which would have expanded gambling within out City limits. We as civic leaders should be in the business of investing in real job growth, not the business of creating more poverty and despair.”
