Cleveland Business Seeks Casino in Clinton County

The Dayton Daily News reported that Rick Lertzman and Brad Pressman, two “Cleveland-area businessmen” are attempting to place a Constitutional amendment on the 2008 statewide ballot authorizing gaming. The ballot language, which has not been made public, would authorize a hotel, casino, golf course and restaurants on a 94-acre site just outside of Wilmington. According to the article, Clinton County Commissioner Randy Riley is taking the proposal under consideration, saying that he has “yet to find a down side” to the plan. The partners claim that casino gambling at their single site would create 5,000 jobs and approximately $170 million for the state.
