Last night’s residents attended the forum on the proposed expansion of Newport Grand that was held at Rogers High School. They heard from casino proponent, URI Professor, Edward Mazze and casino opponent, former Connecticut congressman, Robert Steele.  People expressed their concerns over current jobs that could be lost, if the casino question doesn’t pass in November, as well as how the expansion could help create additional jobs for people in the area during the construction and renovation of the project. Opponents had concerns on how the expansion would affect area local businesses.
