“The negatives outweigh any potential benefits.”
Concord, NH — These were the words of Concord Businessman Steve Duprey at a press conference given by supporters of an Anti-Casino bill at the State Legislative building Tuesday morning. Duprey, who is a member of the Republican National Committee, was joined as spokesperson for the bill by former Democratic State Senator Harold Janeway in an encouraging demonstration of practical bipartisan cooperation.
Duprey and Janeway cited many reasons to oppose casino gambling in the Granite State. They pointed to the statistical increase of crime in areas where casinos have been installed, the detriment to existing business, and the negative effect that casinos would have on cultural institutions and the arts. They also highlighted the potential political impact of casinos in New Hampshire: “If we legalize casinos, our state will be in the business of making casinos succeed, and that gives the industry heavy political influence.”
Duprey also spoke about how casinos would change the identity of the Granite State. ”Instead of being known for Bretton Woods … or Mount Washington, New Hampshire will be ‘The place you go to gamble.’”
Also present were a phalanx of the bill’s supporters including representatives from The Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire, The League of Women Voters of New Hampshire, The New Hampshire Chiefs of Police, The New Hampshire Lodging and Restaurant Association, The Roman Catholic Diocese of Manchester, as well as many private citizens opposed to legalizing commercial gambling in New Hampshire.

Please use JustGive.org for online donations (there is an option to designate a donation in his memory), or you may send a donation to WNHN, c/o Marty Capodice Memorial Fund, 26 Pleasant Street, 2nd Floor, Concord, NH 03301.

Marty also worked for the NH Department of Employment Security, and served as a house manager at the Capitol Center for the Arts for many years. As Arnie recently said, he was also “the rare human being who says ‘hello, how’s it goin’ to princes and paupers on every street he walks.”
Marty, an optimist to the end, would often respond to friends inquiring as to his health: “Every day I’m still standing is a good day,” no matter how bad he actually felt. Our thoughts are with his spouse Arnie Arnesen, and his children and extended family.
On behalf of the staff and volunteers of WNHN, we will miss your ever-present smile and wit. So long, friend.
Brian Beihl, Station Manager
“Thank you to all of the listeners who have sent greetings to Marty and me over the last several weeks. Marty’s cancer has now reached the hospice stage, and I will be spending the next weeks by his side at home.
If you’re a regular listener to The Attitude, you understand that my family is my highest priority. Thanks for being understanding and patient during this difficult time.
We’ll chat soon. Ciao!
WNHN will continue to broadcast “best of” shows each day, and we will have an occasional guest host. Arnie and Marty thank you for your patience and understanding. While she’s gone, she’s leaving it up to you to “Keep the pot stirred so the scum doesn’t rise to the top!”
