Tell Scott Walker To Stand Strong and

Keep His Promises!

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!

Now Governor Walker’s resolve is being tested. Out of state interests are trying desperately to add 3100 new slot machines and 75 new gambling tables in Kenosha!


Help Governor Walker keep his promise.

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

Clearly, two of the Governor's three criteria have not been met.

The Menominee Tribe is partnering with an out of state tribe to build a massive new casino in Kenosha that would add 3,100 slot machines and 75 gaming tables to Wisconsin's already saturated gaming market. The Potawatomi and Ho-Chunk Tribes oppose the new casino.

What's more, the Menominee Tribe has signed an agreement with two unions that would deny workers the right to cast a secret ballot when voting whether or not to unionize.

Help Governor Walker keep his promise.
