WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta hosted a roundtable this morning to discuss the challenges associated with the expansion and improvement of the Eastern Slopes Airport located in Fryeburg, Maine.

 

“Tourism is New Hampshire’s second largest industry, creating thousands of seasonal and yearly jobs, countless economic opportunities for small businesses, construction projects for Granite State developers and state revenue.  The expansion and improvement of the Eastern Slopes Airport is absolutely vital to strengthening our state’s tourism industry and encouraging more out-of-state visitors to travel to the Mt. Washington Valley region to experience the beauty we know so well.”

 

The roundtable was attended by members of the airport’s Board of Directors and representatives from the offices of Congressman Bruce Poliquin (R-ME) and Senator Susan Collins (R-ME.) 

 

This is the first Eastern Slopes Airport roundtable Congressman Guinta has hosted.  He plans to continue these efforts to expedite this vital expansion.
