A poll for voters was created in the recent elections for people to choose whether or not to add table games to the Newport Grand Casino. Majority of voters decided not to bring table games to the grand. Deputy Campaigne Manager for pro casino group, Jobs for Newport, Jacqueline Paolino was unhappy with the decision which she believes is taking away opportunities for jobs. Liz Taber is a spokesperson for Citizens Concerned about Casino Gambling, the group that is against the table games. While the table games will not be added to the casino for now, the topic is definitely one that will resurface in future elections to come.
