Maine missed a great opportunity.

Can you imagine where Maine would be had Les Otten been elected governor instead of the buffoon we have now? Do you think LeBuffoon would support a project like this?  

A project like the Balsams wouldn't stand a snowball's chance in hell with LeBuffoon at the helm. Hell, LeBuffoon will not release funds that Maine's voters have already authorized.

Les Otten is a "doer" not a "cutter" and an obstacle to economic growth. Les Otten doesn't automatically say no to everything government related.

Less Otten has class, and doesn't need a jar of vaseline to get his point across.


New Hampshire panel backs Les Otten’s plan for Balsams

CONCORD, N.H. – A state Senate committee on Tuesday recommended a measure that would help an ambitious plan to redevelop the shuttered Balsams resort but said key details still need to be worked out.

Members of the Senate Finance Committee unanimously supported the bill to create a special taxing district required for the state to back $28 million in loans for the project. The state’s Business Finance Authority would work with the developers on details.

Committee members agreed that Maine businessman Les Otten’s proposal to turn the Balsams into a world-class, four-season destination is an opportunity to reinvigorate a badly faded North Country economy.

“This is a great project, but we do have questions,” said committee Chair Sen. Jeanie Forester, a Meredith Republican.

Located in Dixville Notch, the Balsams, where the nation’s first presidential primary ballots are traditionally cast, closed in 2010 after about 150 years in business and took with it hundreds of jobs in the North Country region that has struggled to create or keep jobs.
