Question 2 on the Nov. 8 ballot is all about jobs. If the referendum is approved, it will bring about 800 construction jobs to Biddeford to build a new race track, slots facility, destination hotel and restaurants.

The entertainment complex will employ roughly 500 people after it’s done. These are good-paying jobs with benefits, and the employers, Ocean Properties and Scarborough Downs, have deep Maine roots and already employs hundreds of people in Maine.

This project will be an economic engine, the type of which don’t come around very often. The people of Biddeford have already voted in favor of the racino, and the developers are ready to put people to work. All they need is our stamp of approval.

Question 2 is a big investment in our economic future. Vote yes.

David Hanson
