Clearly, the loss of GE was a disappointing blow for Connecticut. But as a small business owner in southeastern Connecticut, I am more concerned with another threat from Massachusetts, the development of a casino just a few miles from our border.
My family-owned business in Groton, Paul's TV, works with both Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun. When making deliveries at both sites, it is other small businesses like mine that I see at the loading docks. These small businesses employ many Connecticut residents and rely on work from both of the casinos in our region.
