Confidence high among supporters of Rosie's in Danville
DANVILLE, Va. - This time next year, you could see a seemingly endless amount of people filing in to Rosie's Gaming Emporium in Danville. On Tuesday, voters in Danville will go to the polls to decide if they want to allow Rosie's to open or not. "I support it because I believe it can bring a lot of revenue back into the city," said Danville resident Mary Glass. Danville resident Susan Cox, however, believes Rosie's is too much of a gamble. "So you'll have people from out-of-state bringing revenues into Danville, and not only will they visit Rosie's, but they'll stop and fill their gas tanks, they may spend the night, and they may choose to visit other attractions in Danville."
