Danvers does NOT need a slots parlor. It's going to trash up this town.

Vote No on Slots Parlor. I will destroy the quality of life for the people of Danvers. It will only bring traffic and parking problems, organized crime, drugs, unwanted nighttime activity, undesirable police burden, and ruin our Mall for everyone. Bad for young people too. STOP the GAMBLING PARLOR!!!!! We do NOT NEED THIS!!!
