Casino Opponents in Massachusetts Consider Their Options
By a 20 percent margin, voters in Massachusetts refused to repeal the state’s casino law. The defeat of the ballot question comes as a relief to those bankrolling projects that were approved in three different Massachusetts communities.
It also comes as a bitter disappointment to those opposed to casinos. But Al Cabot, one of the coordinators of the group Repeal the Casino Deal, indicated the campaign is not over. "We have a very active passionate group of individuals who want to help to prevent harm to the people of Massachusetts, and we're going to work in that regard," he said. For now, the group says it will monitor the various casino-related lawsuits and investigations that are ongoing, before the leadership decides its next move.
