The township trustee chairman is frustrated with the Ohio State Racing Commission and their insistence on more indoor seating at the Austintown racetrack. He has asked for an audience with Governor Kasich. The Governor’s spokesman has stated that Kasich will not get involved.
The trustee chairman is upset with the whole process of the racing commission and has asked that the commission lay out precisely what Penn National Gaming needs to do to get the racino built. The chairman believes the community would be dealt a tremendous blow if the racino plans fell through.
