Chicago wants to launch new downtown casino
By Gene J. Koprowski
Chicago Mayor Daley and the City Council may have finally found the "next big revenue source" to finance city government -- casino gambling.
"All one has to do is drive through those parking lots in Northwest Indiana and see all the Illinois plates,'' said Finance Committee Chairman Edward M. Burke (14th). "If those folks are gonna lose their money, they might as well lose it in Chicago."
Added another: "We've got to do something to generate some revenue,'' said Ald. Leslie Hairston (5th).
Jerry Roper, president of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, said it's time to consider putting a casino downtown.
"It's centrally located. It can take advantage of the hotels, the restaurants and the theaters we presently have," he said.
But Mayor Daley said the city needs to work with the state legislature to finalize the details.
Daley said his support "all depends how it's positioned, and can it be government-owned? . . . And some are against that. They don't want government to own it."
