i believe that the casino is a awesome idea and the facts of it giving opportunity to the not so skilled and would also decongest the job market especially like cnc machining,h.e.o. construction,and fabrication which requires schoolling which most cannot afford because we live for right now and have familys to feed.i come from down in mass area and if you dont have the skills you dont get the work.but it seems people get offended when they dont get the job they are not skilled in.this casino would be able to give people the social skills needed to grow.and like anything growth means better jobs and better personalities.also oxford would be one of the biggest tourist attractions especially the speedway if the casino went through they would experiance expansion of the speedway to a point where nascar wanted to put oxford speedway on T.V.
thanks,
Roger Michaud.
