ALN Issues Apology Letter for Casino Forum

Letter to the Editor for Isabel Griffith, President of the Alliance for a Livable Newport. To the Editor, On September 13, Alliance For A Livable Newport, in keeping with its mission of providing unbiased information on issues of importance to Newport residents, property owners and businesses, sponsored a forum on the Casino Table Games question that will appear on the November election ballot.
