NH Businessmen Pitch Gambling Plan
Two Groveton businessmen are pitching a plan to bring gambling to New Hampshire's North Country.
The New Hampshire Union Leader reports businessmen Tom Leduc and Brian Bresnahan are putting the finishing touches on a packet of material that they plan to send to well-known casino operators to try to lure them to northern New Hampshire.
The two think a vacant 30,000-square-foot outfitters building in Groveton would be an ideal location.
The 5-year-old building is designed to look like a north woods lodge.
Bresnahan says the area is ideally situated near interstates 93 in New Hampshire and 91 in Vermont and it would also attract Canadian visitors. The legislature is considering plans to license gambling in the North Country.
