Former Wichita Mayor Bob Knight, Park City Mayor Dee Stuart and Foxwoods Development official Gary Armentrout have scheduled a press conference this morning in Wichita. They will propose combining the best of the state’s gaming proposals.
Opinion surveys show that area residents support expanded gaming and think it’s the best way to pay for increased school funding.
