Opponents defeat high-stakes bingo on Decker

May 4, 2010 11:50:00 PM - thestate.com

Ministers, school advocates and neighborhood leaders rallied their forces to defeat high-stakes bingo along Decker Boulevard.

Tuesday, Richland County Councilman Jim Manning agreed the Catawba Indian Nation hadn’t made a compelling argument for a tourist-oriented bingo hall in an area desperate for new business. He had the issue removed from consideration.

Manning said he has no regrets about how he handled the proposal, which stirred up hundreds of people who sent out emails, made phone calls and packed a community meeting called by Manning after the issue became public..

“I’m a process person,” he said. “I trust the process. The process worked.”
