WHAT’S UP WITH THAT?

The District is on track to roll out an unprecedented online gambling system.

 

 

 

“I don’t oppose it if the city needs the money. I guess it’s a good thing.
— Linwood White, Bryans Road, Md., production

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I’d want to know how the money is being monitored. Is it actually staying in the city? This could be a positive thing, but it’s doing to be difficult to keep track of.”
— Donna Stout, Capitol Hill, theater

 

 

 

 

 

“It’s anybody’s choice, but I don’t agree with gaming. There’s other ways you can go about raising money.”
— Sean Patton, Hyattsville, finance

 

 

 

 

 

“Gambling hooks families. It takes income in a household from where you could be using it. I know it’s getting a bit of revenue [for the city] but you have to play to win.”
— Sean Smith, Temple Hills, computer specialist
