Though he is a Republican, I have always found that Ray Burton, our NH Executive Councilor, invariably has a sound, common sense approach to what is good for the people of the State. I have to say that I would concur wholeheartedly with what Ray set forth in the above letter — just adding that the NH ‘Department of Revenue Administration‘ is another alternative.

I have never understood the opposition to casinos in NH. I think it will be wonderful: create jobs, generate MUCH NEEDED revenue and provide us with another in state destination.

I have never understood this argument about having to protect people from themselves — when we permit guns, smoking, alcohol, prescription drugs and newspaper editors driving at 90 mph. It seems so ironic in the ‘Live Free or Die‘ state, though did YOU know that Alton has a total ban on fireworks?

Yes, I find it amazing that this country actually enacted prohibition. Wow. Well trying to ban casinos for social good is in that same sorry boat. As Ray quite correctly points out NH permits, if not ENCOURAGES, gambling in the form of the Lottery. Just double standards and hypocrisy.

Yes, I know that at least in ultra-rich, Alton, I am the only one impacted by the increase in property tax. Hopefully there are others in less wealthy towns in NH who share my concern as to ever increasing property taxes.

Please take some time to think about this. Ray, at the end of his letter, encourages you to contact him. I know that he will help. He takes his job very seriously. So, please lets try to make casinos a reality in NH so that we can crawl out of the eternal income deficit hole that plagues NH. Thank you.
