Ballot Issue 1 on the November ballot reads: “An Act To Allow Slot Machines or a Casino in York County. Do you want to allow a certain company to operate table games and/or slot machines in York County, subject to state and local approval, with part of the profits going to the specific programs described in the initiative?” Our panelists debate the pros and cons of the ballot measure.

  • Rep. Louis “Louie” Luchini is serving his fourth term in the Maine House of Representatives, representing Ellsworth and Trenton.
  • Shawn Scott is a casino developer and primary backer of Question 1.
