A resolution from the convention, meeting at the Sheraton Springfield Monarch Place Hotel, reads, in part:
“Resolved, that we will undertake efforts to educate our members and our communities about the negative impact casinos will have ...
“Resolved, that we will take action to minimize that negative impact, in particular by opposing a casino in Springfield because of the large number of our fellow citizens made especially vulnerable because of the effects of age, poverty, and addiction in the city; and we will be prepared to help those people who will suffer as a result of this legislation.
Read it all.
