Democratic candidate needs more information on slots also
In a small piece in today’s Boston Globe (on right), Democratic candidate for Governor Deval Patrick reveals an open mind on Indian gambling and a cautious approach to thousands of slot machines in the state’s race track.
Here’s a line from that story,
“…Gubernatorial candidate Deval Patrick said yesterday that his research so far leaves him ”uncomfortable with slots in racetracks and casinos in Massachusetts,” but he needs to do more ”homework” before deciding whether to endorse casino gambling in the state.”
Mr. Patrick adds that he’s not morally opposed to gambling but worries whether the person at the slot can afford to be there as well as concerns about whether slots in private businesses will hurt the Massachusetts lottery which funds education.
In another example of Patrick’s “ahead of the curve” political sense, he has bought web ads to surround any stories about him in The Globe.
The image at the right is what today’s Globe story online looked like with both a full banner ad at the top and a large pop-out ad on the right. Both can be clicked on to go to Patrick’s new online videos.
