This is very sad that it did not pass. I have lived in several states that hosted very large Indain Casinos. Most are very,very, nice with, restuants, attached resort, pools,golf,spas, etc. They bring in large amounts of jobs for people. Also generate tons of money into the county. I think people who have not experienced these casinos do not understand. They are not like Biffs Casino in "Back to the Future". You don't see a bunch of drunks and hookers running around!! The city around it does not fall into life of crime. It is a proven fact there is a financial benefit to everything around these casinos. I feel bad for oxford and Scarborough. Scarbouough esp. now there will only stand a run down or closed down race track. Where there could of been a great beautiful place to go have fun,gamble, eat and shop. Sad......
