Dear CA State Legislator,
In continuing your weak and pathetic work for us in the capitol, widening our budget gap, you claim you are looking for revenue streams and that is why you passed theses shameful memorandum of agreements. Meanwhile, in the Pechanga tribe alone, they have kept 500 members from joining the tribe, as proscribed in their Constitution and Bylaws. Each moratorium internee would have earned about $1.5 million since the opening of the casino on the reservation in Temecula (BOYCOTT PECHANGA)
That's $750,000,000 in taxable income lost to the state because you didn't stand up for the tribal members who have been cheated by the tribe. The tribes said the compacts would be good for ALL native Americans. Now, you want us to believe that the tribe won't cheat the people of CA. You take for granted your union friends, all for some spa treatments for your wives and free golf for you, because you know the unions have nowhere else to go.
Urge your constituents to vote NO on expanded gaming, tell them that you will REWORK these compacts to give rights back to all Native Americans, give the unions their due and get the environmental impacts up. Do the right thing for the people of CA. Don't just do what feels good for you.
