After listening to the endless yammering of Save Lakewood and the spewing of misinformation, one needs to ask the question what is their motivation? A deep seated hatred of local card rooms, or are they truly concerned with Lakewood as a whole. They evidently are willing to risk the public safety and progress this city has made over the years to further their self centered ideals. They state they are not arguing the moral values of gambling, but they take their fight into our churches. To listen to John Arbeeney and Dave Anderson testify at public hearings scares me to think there are such venomous individuals in our city. It really is quite simple, if you don’t like card rooms, don’t go to them. We as citizens can make up our own minds. We don’t like being preached to by a group that distorts facts, and does not care for the welfare of our great city. When given the true facts I am sure my fellow Lakewood citizens agree with me.
