Larry Seckington, legal counsel for Grace Entertainment, said the referendum will need to pass with a 70 percent positive vote for the state to think seriously about breaking a moratorium and granting the license for the boat.
With other referendums under consideration in neighboring Worth, Dickinson, Franklin, Cerro Gordo and Buena Vista counties, the chances of Five Island Lake floating a casino are slim and depend totally on the winning margin here and in those counties, said Seckington.
‘‘We know the other side will be out there in force," he said of the ministerial association members.
The opposition feels the same way, according to the Rev. David Moore, pastor of St. John Lutheran Church in Cylinder.
‘‘I sincerely hope there is a good turnout of Christians at the poll Tuesday voting no on the measure," he said.
Moore also said that there is very little organized opposition to the gambling issue except a mailing to county residents from the ministerial association.
‘‘The gambling industry has a lot of money to throw at the issue," said Moore, adding that he has seen no signs against the boat.
Moore said he hopes that the margin of victory won't be enough to attract the state's attention to Palo Alto County.He has heard that Cerro Gordo, Buena Vista and Franklin counties are also in the running.
‘‘Franklin County is considering putting a boat on a pond at the junction of I-35 and Highway 3," he said.
Tom Alger, Emmetsburg's development director, and Seckington disagreed with the ministers.
