Statement from Country Crossing on the Death of the Simple Bingo Act…
“It is a sad day and a travesty for so many in this state when an incredible opportunity and the people’s right to vote on the issue of electronic bingo was killed by a tyrannical, obsessed and corrupt Governor,” said Jay Walker, spokesman for Country Crossing.
“I hope when people go to the polls in June and November, they understand their voice has been silenced by him and Republican leaders that were scared to do the right thing. Alabama will never move forward with the kind of leadership it’s currently under.”
“As for Country Crossing, we will continue to do whatever we can to get the doors open once again. However, our economic situation will not allow us to sit idly by and wait for something to happen. Country Crossing is a great concept and one that will work almost anywhere, so we will begin exploring doors that have already opened.”
“Our hearts go out to the wonderful leaders and people that are in the Wiregrass area. Our home is there and our heart is, too. We hope to once again be a part of the corporate community in the very near future.”
