Voters Shoot Down Mass. Casino Proposals

Casino supporters in Massachusetts have been dealt twin setbacks with voters in East Boston rejecting proposals by the Suffolk Downs race track and voters in Palmer narrowly defeating a bid by Mohegan Sun to build a resort casino in the western Massachusetts town.
 
    Chip Tuttle, Suffolk Downs chief operating officer, said the company would “reassess” its plans after Tuesday’s results. Voters in Revere approved the casino, but favorable votes were needed in both East Boston and Revere before the track could formally apply to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission for a license.
 
    Mitchell Etess, chief executive of the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority, said the company would ask for a recount in Palmer, where unofficial returns showed opponents of the casino winning by fewer than 100 votes. (Associated Press}
