Milford was a quiet bedroom community when my family and I moved here over 20 years ago. Sadly, in the last few years, I have watched this community change. We have had more than our share of high profile crimes take the national spotlight. A casino will not make these problems any better. Add to that, the damage to competing businesses, (i.e. restaurants, hotels, etc…), the cost of infrastructure and law enforcement and the steep toll of gambling addiction and it’s treatment…. It’s obvious that gambling will take far more out of our community and our economy than it will put in.
