N.H. House panel begins casino review

New anti-casino group emerges

(Continued)

Leaders include Lew Feldstein, former president of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, Alex Ray, owner of The Common Man restaurants, and former Attorney General Phil McLaughlin.

Another organization supporting casino development, the New Hampshire Building & Construction Trades Council, criticized the new group.

“This group represents the same tired old arguments from the same people who have been opposing expanded gambling for years,” council president Joe Casey said. “Maybe the people standing in this group don’t need the services that will be funded by SB 152 or the thousands of good-paying jobs it will create, but many in our state do.”
