01.05.22: Montgomery, Alabama – On 05 January 2022, the Alabama Track Owners Association launched its boldest media campaign yet. The communication encourages Alabama voters to contact their legislators and tell them to let the people of Alabama vote on a comprehensive gaming and lottery constitutional amendment during the November 2022 General Election.
The television advertisement contains the following messaging points: (Note: click here to view the ad.)
“Alabama spent 700 million dollars ($700,000,000) to create 4,000 jobs at an auto manufacturing plant. Now, legislators have an opportunity to generate $700 million a year and create 12,000 jobs without spending any tax dollars – the equivalent of 3 auto manufacturing plants if they just let us vote on a gaming and lottery bill this November. Call 855-GAMING-1 to contact your legislators today.”
The ATOA is asking the citizens of Alabama to contact their legislators and tell them to pass a comprehensive gaming and lottery bill during the 2022 Regular Session that begins on 11 January 2022. The legislators must pass the bill, before the session ends on 28 April 2022, for the citizens of Alabama to be able to exercise their right to vote on a comprehensive gaming and lottery constitutional amendment during the November 2022 General Election.
To contact legislators by phone, please call the toll-free phone number: 1-855-Gaming-1 (1-855-426-4641). To contact legislators by email, please visit www.alabama4gaming.org.
