There’s a scene in “Caddyshack” where Chevy Chase instructs a young golfer to “see your future, be your future.” On Nov. 8 I hope we follow that advice and vote yes on Question 2.

Approving Question 2 will allow two well-established companies with strong Maine connections – Scarborough Downs and Ocean Properties – to expand their investment in Maine and create hundreds of good-paying jobs.

More than 100,000 Mainers are unemployed or under-employed. Scarborough Downs and Ocean Properties are ready to invest in training your unemployed neighbors, hiring your construction companies, ordering supplies from local vendors and offering jobs to the citizens ready to “see their future and be their future” here in Maine.

Too many young people leave our state after we have raised them and educated them. The “way life should be” requires that we provide good-paying jobs that help neighbors move in, not out, of their homes.
