Former Oregon governors speak against casino measure

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Three former Oregon governors will join forces Monday in opposition to a measure on the November ballot that would put a privately run casino in Wood Village.

Former governors Barbara Roberts, Ted Kulongoski and Vic Atiyeh call Measures 82 and 83 dangerous and say they are a bad idea for Oregon.

If passed, the measures would also open the door for private, foreign-owned casinos to be built across the state.

Current Gov. John Kitzhaber has already spoken out against the measure.
