Dear Illinois Gaming Board,

I was born and raised right here in East Hazel Crest and after being gone for 25 years, I have returned and have now lived here with my husband, Matthew, for the past 14 years. I love East Hazel Crest and my husband calls it a hidden diamond of a place to live that no one really knows about.

We support the south suburban casino being located in East Hazel Crest because it will be such a boost in our economic development. I have done some research on Wind Creek Hospitality and all I see are the great things they have done for other communities.

Your consideration of this development would be so greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Monica R. Elsey
