The cities of Rochester and Portsmouth made opposite moves on Keno Tuesday night.
The state’s new Keno law leaves it up to communities to decide whether to allow the electronic gambling game in their restaurants and bars.
In Portsmouth, city councilors voted 7-2 not to put Keno on the ballot this November.
Councilor Nancy Pearson was among the no votes.
“We had a handful of members of the restaurant community in the room tonight, and they walked out. Nobody wants this.”
