Opening Day At Fairmount

March 24th, 2015 | written by Lanny Brooks

Despite a cold rainy day we still had a big crowd and a a total of $700,000.oo wagered.

Here’s hoping for a safe and successful season and the passage of a gaming bill.

ADW Bill

February 26th, 2015 | written by Lanny Brooks

Thanks to all who are concerned for the future of Fairmount Park. Today H.B. 335 passed in the House Executive Committee 7 to 3. It is now on the House floor on the order of second reading. The Bill lifts the sunset date and makes the A.D.W. law permanent. With your help there were 51 witness slips filed for the bill and only 9 against.

Look for a new major gaming bill that will be coming out today. The language will be identical to the previous bill that was introduced last year, so we have a lot of work to do.

Once again, thanks to Wendy Valenti, Mead Dowling from S.E.I.U. Local 1, Labor Local 44, AFSCME Council 31,Fairness for Fairmount and everyone else who supported the bill.

We’re going to need you all going forward.
