Letter: Casino questions
How many pieces of private land will be needed to satisfy all of the demands: more hotels, motels, parking spaces, restaurants? How many “ma and pa” stores will be pushed to the deep?
The biggest problems will come when construction is up for bids. Will bids be limited to New Hampshire contractors and employees? Will building materials be purchased in New Hampshire? Will the state Department of Labor be visible? Will there be any effort directed by the state and, more important, veteran groups, to hire at the top of the list those who offered their lives for you and me for the last 20 years or more? Veterans make excellent security guards. I know of 18 vets who would fall into that category and would be available for other jobs, like local policing.
There is no need to hire any more New Hampshire troopers, no matter what you have been told.
