Canton Regional Chamber Board endorses Issue 2
CANTON, OHIO (April 22, 2010) – The Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has endorsed State Issue 2 on the May 4 ballot. It is an amendment to the Ohio Constitution that permits the relocation of the proposed Columbus gambling casino from the Arena District to the west side of the city at the site of a former auto parts manufacturing plant. Casino gambling was approved by Ohioans in 2009 by constitutional amendment. The specific location of casinos was part of the amendment.
