Sturgis, Michigan (PressExposure) May 09, 2009 -- Sturgis and its surrounding areas have been severely hit by the economic slowdown and have a high rate of unemployment. A casino has been proposed in their area that offers to provide plenty of jobs. However, the congressmen in Lansing have negative views about the proposal of a casino in Sturgis and its surrounding areas and are hence opposed to it.
The local community has repeatedly requested a few of the congressmen to attend their community meetings to discuss the subject; however, the congressmen failed to attend any of the meetings. This has led the local people to believe that their representatives are opposed to the setting up of another casino in the state of Michigan and therefore, would not support them in their endeavor.
Instead of a casino, the representatives have offered to set up a corrections facility in the area. However, the local people feel that by doing so, the representatives have not considered them as a responsible community that can manage and run the casino in a proper and rightful manner.
Therefore, a group of individuals from Sturgis and its surrounding areas have come up with a Web site that voices the concerns and opinions of thousands of locals through its forum. These individuals want their representatives to visit the forum, present their views, and be heard on the subject. Through this Web site the group of individuals wants their representatives to hear the voice of thousands of locals that collectively says, "We need jobs!"
