WHY does Ankeny wish to continue to be just a bedroom community for Des Moines? We have the start of a great sports destination center. Better quality schools, etc., but no decent hotels! WHY are you dismissing the casino proposal in its infancy without considering ALL FACTS??? LOOK, LEARN, LISTEN! RESEARCH before saying NO to Wild Rose's proposals! LOOK what such a complex has done for Altoona! LEARN what Wild Rose has done for Emmetsburg & Clinton! LISTEN to people who understand that a casino is NOT immoral nor casino jobs risque! RESEARCH the facts that having a casino in or near your community DOES NOT lead to higher crime, more addicts, and other such nonsense! I have been a service manager for 30+ years! The service industry has good jobs, good employers, and bring GREAT ECONOMIC BENEFITS to their community, unlike most manufacturing concerns who pollute, take tax breaks, then move out of the country! WE NEED JOBS IN ANKENY! We need a REAL hospital!!! HELP us get them please! Thanks for reading!
