“I don’t oppose it if the city needs the money. I guess it’s a good thing.

“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
