Say NO to More Gambling in Wisconsin.

We don’t need ANOTHER casino.

When Scott Walker ran for Governor, he promised he would honor a referendum that prohibited an expansion of gambling in Wisconsin!

While the Governor has said no to the Kenosha casino, we know his resolve on this matter will continue to be tested. Right now the Ho-Chunk Tribe is pushing to get federal approval for an off-reservation casino in Beloit, which will be yet another expansion of gambling in our state.


Help Governor Walker keep his promise.

Get involved now!

The Facts:


Keep Your Promises, is a grassroots effort by Wisconsin Family Council to urge Governor Walker to keep his promise and stand by the three criteria he established for approval of any new casino in Wisconsin:
  • 1 It must have community support
  • 2 There must be consensus among Wisconsin’s 11 Indian Tribes
  • 3 There can be no net expansion of gambling

We believe the Governor's criteria are excellent and should serve him well in considering any casino proposal in our state. Even though the temptation will be to make each casino proposal about jobs and the economy, the Governor should return to a firm commitment to these guiding principles. Wisconsin’s gaming market is already saturated. We don’t need another casino anywhere in our state.

Help Governor Walker keep his promise.
Wisconsin Doesn't Need ANOTHER Casino:
