TUSKEGEE, AL (WSFA) -
"We have been very patient, but our patience has run short," Macon County Commission Chair Louis Maxwell said.
The Tuskegee residents who gathered at the Macon County courthouse say they voted for electronic bingo and somehow..someway...they will get it back.
"We did everything according to the law. You can delay justice, but you cannot deny justice to the citizens of this community," Maxwell said.
Macon County Schools Superintendent Dr. Jacqueline Brooks says Victoryland must reopen and stay open for the sake of education.
"Victoryland is a major enterprise in providing financial resources for our school system; a loss of 2.7 million dollars over the last three years; a loss of 1.1 million dollars in discretionary funds. These are funds our students need," Dr. Brooks said.
"This is the fourth time it's been shutdown since I've been there," 12-year Victoryland employee Billy Ferguson said.
The employees present at the rally say they are ready to get their livelihood back.
"It's been a circus. This should not be going on, not like this. This is common sense. It's a shame we got to go through all of this. This has been a hardship on a lot of people," Ferguson said.
"And I will be glad when they get together and let us vote or do whatever we need to do to get back to work," 20-year Victoryland employee Sally Key Pace said.
These workers and residents say they are still hanging on to hope and what they say is right as we all wait for a decision.
The Tuskegee-Macon county branch of the NAACCP coordinated the rally. Members point out independent testers deemed Victoryland's machines are legal under Alabama law. But the attorney general's office says it has evidence proving the bingo machines are actually illegal slot machines.
