Question 1 on next Tuesday's statewide ballot is a citizen-initiated referendum that seeks to add a third casino in Maine somewhere in York County. Proponents say it would be a significant boost to Maine's economy, stating a York County casino would create 2,165 permanent jobs, 2,767 construction jobs and contribute $248.1 million in tax revenues over the first five years of operation. Opponents say Maine has enough casinos already and a third casino would be unlikely to add new revenue and instead would simply divert existing customers from casinos in Oxford and Bangor. Gov. Paul LePage also criticized the ballot initiative for chiefly benefiting the person bankrolling the referendum â out-of-state gambling developer Shawn Scott, who is the only party allowed to develop the casino if the question is approved and whose companies have been hit by a string of litigation since he sold the Bangor casino to Penn National in 2004, netting $51 million.
