"It would be catastrophic for the City of Wheeling and Ohio Country for this to happen. We had the City Manager testify before Senate Finance the other day, Bob Herron, and he talked about how devastating a blow this would be to the city if this were to happen. We just had a hospital shut down, a major employer in the area, this track is also a major employer, we can't afford to have this happen, plus, it's my opinion, Mark, that we should double down on this industry, we shouldn't kick it to the curb. There's a lot of gambling revenue that can be had from places like Florida and Arkansas where they've shut down greyhound racing, we ought to double down on the industry, we shouldn't shut it down."
