The Republican legislative candidate has publicly endorsed casino gambling as a form of funding property tax relief.

US.- Janet Palmtag, a local businesswoman competing for a place as a representative for Nebraska Legislative District 1, has openly endorsed casino gambling in the state as a way to fund property tax relief.

Legalising casino gambling at Nebraska racetracks has been widely debated in the state, and three initiatives have been added to the November ballot.

Palmtag, who shared her views in a radio ad campaign, said: “We cannot achieve real property tax relief by kicking the can down the road. That’s why I’m taking a bold stand.

“Listening to thousands of voters across our five-county region, I have come to believe that adding this new revenue stream is our only viable option for achieving real property tax relief.

“To be clear, I personally am not a gambler, but for some it is entertainment.”
