Vote No on #8

To the Editor:

The NTW Aug. 7 editorial "Newport Shine" was a wonderful distillation of what makes this city attractive. I was glad you did not mention the casino. While it serves the gambling public and feeds the state's coffers, it does not contribute to our uniqueness. Nothing the "Providence crowd" proposes will change that. Voting "no" on #8, rejecting a massive gambling expansion, is voting FOR Newport's wonderful character. Richard Walega
