No Pokies for Dandenong!
We the undersigned community members hereby petition the elected councillors of City of Greater Dandenong.
We object to the transfer of 25 poker machines from the Jim Dandy Hotel to The Players Hotel (Nu Hotel).
We strongly oppose the placement of poker machines in the The Players Hotel (Nu Hotel) as this would change the venue from being a small to medium.
The Players Hotel (Nu Hotel) is poorly designed and adding more pokies will only add to the high level of harm our community already experiences. We need to be protected from harm, not subjected to more!
The petitioners therefore call upon the Councillors of the City of Greater Dandenong - Y. Chea, S. O'Reilly, L. Truong, R. Blades AM, T. Dark, S. Tan, M. Kirwan, A. Long, J. Memeti, Z. Melhem and M. Sampey - to vote against this application.
