Danville council passes resolution requesting casino referendum on November ballot John R. Crane, Danville Register & Bee · August 5, 2020 at 8:33 pm Danville City Council voted to pass a resolution requesting that a referendum be held in November on whether a casino will be allowed in the city. Council voted 6-0 for the resolution during its regular meeting Tuesday night. Councilmen Madison Whittle and Sam Kushner were absent. Councilman Larry Campbell Jr. attended the meeting but did not vote because he has not yet been sworn in since winning re-election in May. If voters approve a casino in Danville, Caesars Entertainment, based in Paradise, Nevada, would be expected to invest more than $400 million and create 1,300 jobs paying between $35,000 and $47,000 annually.
