Patch gives readers' a chance to sound off each week on controversial topics or to share some personal experiences around current events.
The Maryland General Assembly is considering approving a bill during a special session that would permit a sixth casino in Prince George’s County, and allow for table games at existing gaming sites.
Gov. Martin O’Malley called the special session so the issue can be put on the ballot as a referendum before voters in the Nov. 6 general election.
But Patch wants to know how readers want the legislators who represent North Baltimore to vote.
