The Public Input Hearing, Mohegan Sun Casino Project

More than 400 people gathered at the South Boston Convention Center on Tuesday, March 25, to attend the public input hearing on the Revere Mohegan Sun casino project in front of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC). Residents from all over Boston, Winthrop, Revere, Chelsea , Everett and the Greater Boston region spoke to the MGC for up to five minutes each about their views on the casino being allowed to be built.  The two most argued cases for the casino were the job creation and economic benefits it will bring in for the region and how it will revitalize Revere into the destination it was in the 1920s. Opponents of the casino being built in Revere spoke about how it will create traffic in an already heavily driven area. They also spoke about how it could bring crime and drain the community of much needed independent business.

  • It’s clear that people of Revere don’t mind bending down to kiss the ring of Mohegan Sun, but some of us don’t think it’s a very good idea. This is the single issue on which Jay Ash disappoints me.
