Holding out Hope – Gaming Legislation Back on the Radar

February 3, 2011
By

Many signs point to the possibility that the House and the Senate will take up an expanded gaming bill during this session on Beacon Hill.

This is good news for those of us who believe a casino at Suffolk Downs would be a great stimulus to the local economy creating jobs and new taxes and putting back to work hundreds of carpenters and steel workers, as well as laborers.

The governor has said he would sign a bill that suited him but that he would not spend a minute of his time getting involved with a debate over the issue.

Everyone in the Senate and the House knows exactly where the Governor stands.

All they need to do is send him a bill he will sign and we’ll be off to the races, so to speak.

It could be as easy as that – and we hope it is.

    has anyone tried to drive beach st. to bell cir.? or the other side of town, traffic jams with no police support (where are they). surruonding communities use our town as a short cut with no manners.If any jobs come of this ,only the connections will help. the crime and displacement of any monies our town folks have will disappear with the greed and false promises of people we trusted on election day. build it somewhere else!!,more grief than help will come of this.

    When the casinos come to Revere, I am moving and renting my home. Ever been right outside of Atlantic city or Las Vegas neighborhoods? They are lower than slums. You think Shirley Ave is a dump now, wait until the casinos open.
