Virginia Poker Regulations

My name is Daniel Roth, a resident of Henrico County, and a member of the Board of Rudlin Torah Academy, central Virginia’s only full-time Jewish Day School for children in grades K-8.

To ensure ongoing success in educating our children, we require ongoing financial support via charitable giving of individuals and organizations.

A significant portion of our funds raised has historically been from charitable gaming organizations such as Pop’s Poker. It is critical to our success, and the resultant educational successes of our students, that regulations be modified in a way that allows Pop’s, and organizations like it, to return to its place as a reliable generator of charitable funds through its poker programs.

For this reason, I strongly support Del. Wren Williams’ comment submitted on February 7, 2024 on these regulations. I hope you will adopt his suggested changes.
