Fluharty has already had a huge role in the NCLGS’ responsible gambling efforts. He also spearheaded the launch of WV online casinos in the Mountain State.

Jon Ford has served as an Indiana Senator for nine years and has decided to step down with two years left in his term. In turn, he also removed himself as NCLGS president.

Fluharty, expected to take over in January, is now assuming the president role a few months earlier. Fluharty is ready, and said he owes Ford his thanks.
