Letter: In response to SG Board’s decision regarding video gaming

By on October 25, 2012

In response to the Sugar Grove Village Board’s decision to table video gaming, all I have to say is this: I am a veteran and a legionnaire, and we saved this country’s fanny. Now the board says we can’t have any enjoyment.

As far as gambling is concerned, very little of it goes on with these machines. However, they pay taxes. The establishment couldn’t pay the taxes if not for these machines.

If it wasn’t for us vets, you might not even have a country.

This decision will kill the Sugar Grove Legion. Now they won’t be able to pay their taxes.
