Part 3 of our special Election Ballot Debate Series, hosted along with UMass Boston and The Boston Globe.
We discuss ballot Question 1, which proposes a change to the state's casino law that would allow the state's Gaming Commission to award a second slots parlor license.
We asked the two groups involved in this issue to offer their representative to participate in this debate.
Miss the debate? You can listen to it atop this post or rewatch the live stream video below:
David Nealley, city councilor in Bangor, Maine, where he worked on an initiative to turn the Bangor Historic Track into the Hollywood Casino Bangor. He's representing "Horse Racing Jobs And Education Committee," the group behind the ballot question, run by developer Eugene McCain.
Celeste Ribeiro Myers, chair of the Committee for Responsible and Sustainable Economic Development, which is opposing the ballot question. She tweets @CelesteBoston.
