The real big question that is now before us, front and center: where-o-where in Laconia will the State Lottery be opening a sports betting parlor? Will it get installed within a quiet aisle in the Laconia state liquor store, say in the aisle with the wines imported from far away California, or where???
The real big question that is why flood with forum the needless duplicates.
Why not post here in the dedicated topic?

Did you forget to take your medications again? Laconia does not have a State Liquor Store.

I was unaware, and just assumed Laconia has a state liquor store, because Belmont, Gilford, and Meredith all have state liquor stores, plus the very big one at Exit 23 in New Hampton. NH has 77 conveniently located state liquor stores, all across the state, making state liquor the biggest interface between the state and the people, in this small state.

Walmart has 30 big stores across NH, and Walmart does not sell any NH lottery ticket items .... hurray for Walmart-NH.

You know where the former Good Will store location was in Laconia, down town? Isn't that now a very large, vacant commercial space? Maybe that could be a good spot for a large Laconia sports betting venue ...... and at a very low rent?

From a hardware store to Good Will to NH sports betting ....... helloooo Laconia!

Wonder if the five city councilors, the city manager, and the city mayor in Laconia have any input to the state lottery about a sports betting store in Laconia ..... probably not ..... because it got voted yes?

............
..............
............

The Town of Plymouth has a totally perfect vacant commercial space, on Main St between the bank and the hardware, in what used to be a large college oriented book store, plus someone recently re-did the floor, walls, and lighting with high quality results ...... and, it is once again, vacant.

Will the Town of Plymouth be voting yes or no to NH sports betting in March, 2020?

The citizens of Laconia lost. With Spanos and Baer losing, there is no governor to question the spare-no-expense councilors, and Spanos was the only candidate to question Laconia's unusual investment in low income housing.

It will be interesting as we move forward. Sad to say our election went the way most of the other state wide local elections

Default Election for Mayor of Laconia

The GOP in NH, by all recent elections, appear to be a afterthought. We are no longer Red State, Purple at best, but now blue. Limited direction from the state GOP leaders and in fighting of which candidate to support led to this. New leadership is needed, where it comes from is unknown

Default ...... 918 Weirs Blvd-on Paugus Bay

Here's a 4-minute recorded interview with Mayor elect Andrew Hosmer from Nov 6:

https://www.nhpr.org/post/laconia-ma...using#stream/0

Where Laconia really wants to focus is turning that 918 Weirs Blvd parcel of city land, on Paugus Bay, into a hand carry boat launch for kayaks, canoes, and stand up paddle boards.

If you all want Mayor Hosmer to make 918 Weirs Blvd into a kayak launch ….. then raise your paddle up high, and wave it all around ……. so everyone can see it!

Thank-you very much!
...........

...... dang-it, cannot get this 4:26 question and answer, NHPR and Mayor elect Andrew Hosmer link, to work, so's maybe someone with better skills can make it happen ..... a Nov 6, day after the election, interview, with Laconia's newly elected mayor ..... thanks in advance!

.......or, google 'NHPR: Andrew Hosmer' and you will probably have a November 6, 4-minute, 26-second conversation from NHPR-All Things Considered with Mayor elect Andrew Hosmer.
