TIVERTON, R.I. (AP) - Twin River Management group is stepping up its efforts to promote its plan for a casino in Rhode Island by opening a new headquarters before the casino’s fate is decided in November’s ballot.

The Newport Daily News (https://bit.ly/2cJupjf ) reports that the headquarters opened Tuesday in Tiverton.

Twin River spokeswoman Patti Doyle says the opening is an opportunity to have a presence in the community. It’s a place where residents can ask questions and pick up campaign buttons.

Voters will be asked whether to approve building a $75 million casino a short distance from the Massachusetts border.

The state would get 15.5 percent of proceeds from table games and 61 percent from video machines. The town of Tiverton would be guaranteed at least $3 million a year.
