What do the Democrats say about excluding Fairmount Park?

May 5, 2014 

The idea that the state can single out one race track is an egregious misuse of power. I do not understand why or how Rep. Dwight Kay, a Republican, can pronounce the fate of the offending bill dead as he is in the minority party in this state.

I want to hear what Sen. James Clayborne thinks and why he did not push hard enough to affect the bill. I want to know why Rep. Jay Hoffman, a fellow Democrat, cannot have any effect on the outcome.

I question whether the metro-east has effective representation in the legislature.
