La Crescent Mayor Has Doubts About Casino Talk
An independent candidate for Minnesota governor, Rob Hahn, sees riverboat casinos in the state's future, as far south as La Crescent. But La Crescent Mayor Mike Poellinger says people in the community already have outlets for gambling...to raise money for charity. He also thinks the region might be saturated with casinos, such as Treasure Island and Lady Luck. And Poellinger wonders where Hahn would put a riverboat in La Crescent...where most of the riverfront land is already held by private owners.
