Over the past 75 years, thousands of Chelsea residents have found steady employment at Suffolk Downs.
If Suffolk Downs receives a license to build a casino on its property – while maintaining the horse racing venue as well – more Chelsea residents than ever before will likely find a job there in the future.
The owners of Suffolk Downs have estimated that at least 2500 new positions would be filled almost overnight when construction begins and the casino project gets underway.
When the development is complete, it is impossible to estimate the total number of jobs that will be created except to say there will be restaurants and retail outlets, shops and business opportunities of all kinds in abundance at a successful Suffolk Downs casino and track.
All of this translates naturally into job opportunities for Chelsea’s available workforce.
This is why we favor the casino at Suffolk Downs.
It is important to the Chelsea economy.
