PAUL FA‘AOLA WILL LEAD CASINO PLAN DELEGATION VISIT TO AMERICAN SAMOA

By Lewis Wolman

PAGO PAGO, American Samoa (January 11, 2000 – Samoa News)---Paul Fa‘aola will arrive in American Samoa Friday night, and other members of the Fa‘aola Group will be flying in with him, or on Hawaiian Air's Monday night flight.

"There will be a total of about ten people coming in," said JR Fa‘aola, a local member of the Group. "I think Paul will be spending a few weeks here."

The Group anticipates being able to present their case in favor of legalizing casino gambling in American Samoa while here, and looks forward to testifying before the Fono if hearings are scheduled during their time on island.

"We have a good idea of the state of public sentiment," JR Fa‘aola said yesterday, "but we will try to explain the benefits of our proposal so the Fono can make up its mind."

JR Fa'aola works at the Fono, as a special assistant to the Speaker of the House.
