MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) – A rally to protest the removal of electronic bingo machines from Greenetrack took place on Friday in Montgomery.
Supporters rallied across the street from the Alabama Supreme Court. Their purpose was to show the Supreme Court their disappointment over a ruling that allowed Governor Riley's task force on illegal gaming to raid the Greene County establishment two weeks ago. Several supporters from Country Crossing, another business raided by the task force, showed up for the rally as well.
State Representative John Rogers says he feels Greenetrack supporters should vote against Supreme Court candidates who made the ruling.
Joe Reed of the Alabama Democratic Conference says he is planning another rally for Labor Day that will double as a voter registration drive. Reed is hoping for around 25,000 people to attend the rally. He also says that he plans to find celebrities to make appearances.
Governor Riley's office issued a statement shortly after the rally saying, "If Greene County officials put as much energy into recruiting new industry as they do to protesting about Greenetrack, imagine just how well Greene County could be doing when it comes to economic development."
Governor Riley's Communications Director, Jeff Emerson, made the comment after announcing a new multi-million dollar plant would locate in Montgomery. "The fact is, it takes local officials working together with the state to recruit new industry," Emerson added. "That doesn't happen in Greene County, and no major industry is going to locate in an area where the local officials refuse to enforce the law.?
