An anti-casino coalition has formed in Monterey Park, its leaders announced this week. The group, Citizens Against Casino Gambling, has about 30 members, said acting chairman Irving Willner. Members include residents, elected officials, clergy, and Asian and Latino community leaders. The group formed to monitor attempts by developers to bring gambling clubs into the city, Willner said.
