Gaming Control Board Chairman Ronnie Jones
In today’s Sound Off Louisiana feature, founder Robert Burns provides insight on an email he received on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 from someone professing to be a pretty big fan of his blog and who offers to mail cash to Burns to defray operating expenses. That proposed act of kindness, however, was followed with a polite but less-than-subtle request that Burns refrain from any more negative references to Gov. Edwards’ Chairman of his Gaming Control Board, Ronnie Jones. The feature follows:
Burns covers the email exchanges between him and the kind prospective benefactor.
Hayride article referenced above wherein publisher Scott McKay was offered $10,000 to refrain from
any more negative articles on last year’s 18 cent-a-gallon gas tax (which failed to even come to a vote in the Louisiana House of Representatives).
Advocate article outlining proposed legislation for the 2018 Legislative Session to expand land-based gaming in Louisiana wherein it’s referenced that “the changes for the riverboats come from recommendations offered by a task force co-chaired by Ronnie Jones, chairman of the state board that regulates gambling.”
