Washington, DC – October 24, 2018
The largest poker advocacy organization in the United States today sent an email to more than 30,000 members in Florida encouraging them to vote no on Amendment 3 in the upcoming election.
“Amendment 3 is a pernicious and anti-competitive approach to limiting poker and other gaming in the State of Florida for decades to come. A few exceedingly well financed special interests are driving a ballot initiative that is mislabeled and anti-consumer in the State of Florida and we are asking people to Vote No on 3,” said Mark Brenner President of the Poker Alliance.
“There is a reason all of the major newspapers in Florida that have reviewed this initiative, and taken a position against the amendment, are encouraging people to vote no on Amendment 3. We agree with those who have thoughtfully reviewed the issues and logically concluded that this is horrible policy and merely a play by two special interest organizations to protect their bottom lines.”
Every day from now through November 6, Poker Alliance will be aggressively fighting for the rights of the citizens of the State of Florida. We wrote to our members this morning urging them to vote no on 3. We will be writing to our 500,000 members nationwide to encourage them to reach out to friends and family in Florida to learn about the issues and vote no on Amendment 3. And, we will be doing everything we can to shine a light on this misguided approach to restrict progress in Florida.
