Flynn Wants Slot Machines
George Carney wants slot machines at Raynham Park. He is willing to fight tooth and nail to get the slot machines, and has been doing pretty much just that. He has set his sites on getting them to increase the revenue at his track, and thinks that he stands a pretty good chance at getting them.
Year after year Carney says that he watches the revenue at his track drop, and says that without slot machines he is not sure how much longer he will be able to compete with those that already have them. He says that the slot machines bring in business, and allows him to increase his purses. Higher purses mean better horses and better races – which in turn lead to more money. It is a circle that he wants to be a part of.
He also points out that the slot machine will enable him to keep on the hundreds of jobs that would have to be eliminated if the slot machines do not come in. This would lead to families in trouble and then dependent on the state for help – leading to a bad situation there as well.
He says that he has been trying for years to get slot machines, but now he finally has a friendly face. Rep. David Flynn also wants to see slot machines brought in. he says that he thinks that third time is the charm and that they are going to be successful in getting them this time around. He says that the state needs the money that the slot machines would bring in, as does the track.
