Pop's Poker

I support delegates Williams and Taylors' letters/position in regard to local charitable poker.

 These small poker rooms in no way have any effect on large scale gaming such as Rivers, 80 miles away. It brings jobs, safe entertainment, and charitable support to the community.  It provides more of a community activity for the players. Recently, I was one of 172 players that showed up for a free tournament! While present I had a conversation with a detail police officer and asked him if he has EVER had any problems at Pop's Poker and he replied in the negative. This is a perfect example of a small business that should be encouraged, it is a classic win/win/win situation!

Thank you for your time.
