Not surprisingly, David Barnett, Chief Shill for the Cowlitz Tribe in their effort to open up their economic black hole, could only "question the accuracy of the results."
This clown didn't offer a SHRED of evidence to show those results to be inaccurate, of course... all he could do was "question" the results.
Is it just me, or is it EVERY SINGLE TIME the Tribe is presented with yet another proof their Megacasino isn't wanted here... all they can do is "question the results."
This represents yet another episode where the Cowlitz prove they don't give a damn about what the people of this County want. No amount of damage to us, our businesses, our families... none of that will make any difference in their desire to punish the people of Clark County with their economic and social "Black Hole," and costs to us be damned... as long as they get theirs.
Survey: La Center opposes casino

By MARGARET ELLIS, Columbian staff writer
La Center residents who responded to a survey aren't looking forward to a tribal casino moving in next door.
The survey, conducted on behalf of the city of La Center, found that two-thirds of residents oppose the Cowlitz Tribe's plan for a casino on Northwest 319th Street, two miles from the La Center city limits.
The Cowlitz Tribe is asking the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs for permission to build a $400 million casino and hotel on 152 acres. A decision is expected in about a year.
The level of opposition isn't much of a surprise, said Councilman Dale Smith.
"What surprised me was the number of those who strongly opposed," he said. "I thought they'd be more ambivalent."
