Washington Redskins Endorse Question 7

Posted Oct 2, 2012

The Redskins joined county officials, labor organizations and business leaders in supporting Question 7, a ballot initiative in Maryland.

The Washington Redskins joined county officials, labor organizations and business leaders in supporting Question 7, a ballot initiative that would bring thousands of jobs and hundreds of millions in revenue to Maryland.

The announcement is the latest in a large and growing coalition of support for Question 7.

“The Washington Redskins organization is proud to join with elected officials and our business partners in Maryland to endorse Ballot Question 7,” said Dennis Greene, President of Business Operations. “As members of the Prince George’s County business community, we see it as our obligation to speak out in support of major economic development initiatives.

“We believe Question 7 represents a tremendous opportunity for Prince George’s County and all of Maryland to create thousands of good-paying jobs, increase funding for public schools, and help provide dollars for other critical state and local government services.

“We urge all of our fans to join the Washington Redskins organization in supporting Question 7 on Election Day.”

Supporting Question 7 on the ballot this November would create 2,000 new construction jobs1, 4,000 permanent jobs at the new resort casino2, 4,400 additional permanent jobs associated with the development3, and 1,600 new jobs from the introduction of table games at all Maryland casinos4.

Question 7 will also help recapture the estimated $550 Million a year that Marylanders currently spend at out of state casinos5.
