Chamber Chief Believes Fall River Still Has Inside Track For Casino
The head of the Fall River Chamber of Commerce is questioning the validity of a published report that said Foxwoods is looking at the Whaling City Golf Course in New Bedford as a site for a resort casino.
Speaking on WBSM's Mid-Day Magazine, Rob Mellion admits when he read the Standard Times report, he started making phone calls...
Mellion says he "gets" competition, but he believes if New Bedford wins the casino competition for Region C, it will likely cause tensions long-term between both communities.
And if Foxwoods is courting New Bedford, he says it could be an attempt to get a better deal from Fall River.
