Mayors make gamble of their own on carnival conditions

Posted: Updated:

The mayors aren't playing games when it comes to shutting down this year's Liberation Carnival. At a Mayor's Council Meeting, Mayors gave an ultimatum, they won't host the carnival unless the law is amended to allow games of chance by their next meeting in April.  

Mayor Paul McDonald, President of the Council, says they want to amend Senator Telena Nelson's Bill that banned all Casino and games, saying, "During the time of Governor Camacho, he didn't allow casino but we continued to have the carnival because it was only the casino that wasn't allowed, but the games were still going on the big and small, colored games, beto beto, that games were still allowed."

The mayors said last year they made no money, and without the games, it's not worth the costs.
