Mass Gaming keeps battling for the Brockton casino approval - Massachusetts-USA
The Massachusetts Gaming Commission announced Thursday that it would keep its commitment to approving the currently under-discussion "$ 650 million Brockton casino project". And that is quite a promising fact for the Mass Gaming & Entertainment, the only applicant running for a casino license in the region. Among the fervent supporters of the project include Brockton's Mayor, "Bill Carpenter". He recently voiced his concerns about the decisions some board members of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission would take to put an end to the process. Reality is that New Bedford, another competitor in the race, withdrew its license application last month, which is likely prompting the commission to close out the said process.
Hours earlier on the same day, Brockton's Mayor and Mass Gaming Chairman "Neil Bluhm" presented an update version of their project to the commission boards. Underlined there-in were the substantial revenues the city could benefit from. While questioning the withdrawal of New Bedford from the race, Attorney General Maura Healey and MGC Chairman Stephen Crosby addressed the economic viability of the casino plan. Bill Carpenter reassured the board that Mass Gaming & Entertainment is a highly qualified yet go-getter casino developer with strong will to operate a resort on the Brockton Fairgrounds. If approved and completed, the project would create 1,500 jobs in the area, along with tax revenues amounted to $ 100 million, $ 10 million of which would go to the city of Brockton. Recall that the submission of the final application is due on September 30.
