MGM Seeks Support For Casino At Springfield Polling Places
Supporters of MGM Resorts’ casino project campaigned outside several Springfield polling places during Tuesday’s special Senate election.
MGM representatives handed out brochures, buttons and signs and urged voters to come back to the polls on July 16th and vote in favor of the company’s $800 million Springfield casino project. Michael Mathis, an MGM vice president said this was just part of a campaign to get a high turnout and an overwhelmingly affirmative vote.
Citizens Against Casino Gaming did not have a presence at the polls Tuesday, but the group is planning a forum Wednesday night featuring several prominent anti-casino speakers.
