Sugarhouse casino company is undertaking an agressive campaign to win over community support, sending out fliers that claim that casinos will make the city safer (by providing revenues that could hire more police, etc.) -- an unsubtle appeal to fear. Apparently the campaign also includes robocalls; we got the mailer at my house, but appear to have escaped the calls so far. Took me by surprise, and apparently anti-casino activists as well.
