Our friends at Casino-Free Philadelphia are calling on all supporters to gather at City Hall on June 13th to demand that City Council vote against zoning bills legalizing the construction of SugarHouse Casino within two hundred feet of a residential community.

At the same City Council Rules Committee hearing, we will ask them to send the 1,500-foot buffer zone -- supported by the majority of Philadelphians -- to Council for passage. In our Philly's Ballot Box election, 95% of the voters expressed their support for this buffer.
