Casino Gambling had been proposed as a referendum a few times on Guam, and Archbishop Apuron had always been an outspoken critic against it. But the supporters of gambling has once again tried to bring it in at the Liberation Day Carnival. The carnival is supposed to be a place for kids and families. If Archbishop Apuron were here, he would have led a campaign against casino gambling in the carnival.
However, thanks to Telena Nelson, her bill to ban casino gambling at the Liberation Day Parade was passed unanimously by the Guam Legislature. If the Governor were to veto this bill, he would have to convince at least six members in the Guam Legislature to vote against the override.
