Why We’re Fighting
There are plenty of reasons why we’re fighting to Stop Graton Casino. But, it all centers around one shared belief: the Graton Casino will destroy Sonoma County’s unique quality of life.
We’ve continued to fight and are awaiting a decision by the First District Court of Appeal in California. A judge has the power to declare the Graton Casino compact with the State of California unconstitutional. We’ve argued that when a tribe buys new lands, especially lands near population centers, they get only title, and not the same sovereignty they have over those historical Indian lands.
There’s no doubt that we’re the underdog. We’re facing off against the Vegas casino interests – and the politicians in their pocket.
Graton Casino’s Empty Promises
Sonoma County will never see any of the promised money from Graton Casino.
Relaxed labor laws.
Bumper-to-bumper traffic on your weekend shopping trip.
