Regarding the pending applications for Illinois' tenth casino license, and the proposed development of CHAMPIONS Casino & Resort at Hawthorne Park in Stickney, Illinois,


In that CHAMPIONS Casino & Resort will create nearly 4,000 retail and entertainment jobs; will greatly increase the tax base for this economically deprived area; will provide premiere sports and gaming entertainment in the Chicagoland market; will feature a comprehensive entertainment district; will return Illinois horseracing to national prominence at Hawthorne Race Course; and will serve as a vital catalyst for the economic development of the Cicero Corridor from Ogden Avenue to Midway Airport; we, the undersigned, pledge our support.

Three-quarters of a billion dollars is going to the state of Indiana . That's silly. That's silly when you can do it here and you can do it better. And it makes sense. That's why this thing is so truly exciting to me, it truly makes sense. And I hope it makes sense to the people that make the decisions."

"There's nothing better for state of Illinois, and what we're trying to do down in Springfield . Nine years we haven't had [this license] up and running. We're losing millions and millions of dollars. Let's do this thing right, and let's make sure that it's Stickney and Hawthorne that get this license."

State Representative, Illinois
