Abstract

Article on the July 10 approval by Bangor voters of a city referendum to add slot machines to the city's harness racing track. The outcome was a victory for Las Vegas-based Capital Seven LLC, which is proposing to turn the old Bangor Raceway into a "racino." Capital Seven still needs approval of a November statewide referendum to allow slot machines at horse racing tracks. With comments by Shawn Scott, owner of Capital Seven; Dennis Bailey, spokesman for the anti-casino group Casinos No!; and Jonathan Daniels, Bangor's director of business and economic development.
