Chief among the criteria for finding a casino partner to bring to Columbus was having a commitment to community, according Tom Jackson.
Jackson, who’s involved with Columbus Exposition and Racing and Convergence LLC, was the keynote speaker during the businesspersons’ breakfast held by the Columbus Area Chamber of Commerce Agribusiness Committee on July 7 at Ag Park. During this time, he shared an update on the race track and casino project.
Last year, plans were announced for a Harrah’s casino and a race track to be developed on the former Wishbones property located northwest of Columbus. Caesars Entertainment owns the Harrah’s brand, and Convergence, LLC, is the overarching developer.
