|WEATHERFORD — April 21, 2023 — Texas Family Project Policy Director Austin Griesinger issued the following statement:
“Bringing casinos to Texas would benefit lobbyists and Democrats at the expense of Texas families. As lawmakers consider legislation on this issue in the Texas Capitol, Texas Family Project is going directly to the voters and organizing them to oppose this harmful attack on our state’s families and values. We are proud to partner with former State Representative Bill Zedler on a new TV ad that will be on the air beginning Saturday.”
“Bill Zelder championed the fight against the casino lobby in the Texas Legislature. He’s spent decades fighting the millions upon millions of dollars spent by gambling interests trying to get a foothold in our state. We are excited and thankful Mr. Zedler joined us on this project.”
The ad highlights the demonstrably negative effect that casinos have on the states and communities they are introduced to. The spot also illuminates the empty promises made by the casino lobby.
“I spent years opposing legalizing casinos in our state,” stated Mr. Zedler. “The numbers are there and they are clear – casinos bring crime, bankruptcy, addiction, and have disastrous effects on the family. We didn’t need that in Texas 60 years ago, 20 years ago, and we certainly don’t need it now.”
The new television ad will begin running on local stations Saturday, April 22nd, 2023 and will highlight the disastrous effects of legalizing casino gambling in Texas, which is currently being considered by the Texas Legislature.
