Superior Court Justice Janet Sanders dismissed Boston’s suit to halt construction on the casino in Everett.

Bonnie McGilpin, spokeswoman for Boston Mayor Martin Walsh, said the dismissal does not signify the end of the process.

Dear Mayor Walsh – “Let It Go, Let It Go”

Wynn is too significant in the gaming industry world. The MGC courted him to be in Massachusetts.  Sure, the process might have been suspect, but the state of Massachusetts needs to move on with the “Jewel” of New England’s Gaming Industry.  It’s going to happen, so just let it.

Michael Weaver, a spokesman for Wynn Resorts, said moving forward with the project is in the best interest of the general public. And I believe that is so.

Waiting to get this accomplished reminds me how the Patriots let the Eagles back in the game last weekend – and we know what happened after that!

The wait has been long enough.  Rhode Island & Connecticut casinos continue to increase their influence on New England’s gamblers, with mort plans in the making. The time to start this project for Massachusetts is NOW!

Weaver wrote in an email. “We are well underway in successful site remediation and look forward to creating 4,000 union construction jobs and $1.7 billion in construction spending, 4,000 permanent jobs and bringing $22.3 million in taxes a month to the Commonwealth and local communities.”
