Foxborough Vote Sends Anti-Casino Message

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Foxborough residents sided with casino critics in voting for two select board members opposed to any talks over a $1 billion resort casino proposed by Las Vegas developer Steve Wynn.

If selectmen don’t enter negotiations with Wynn, the project cannot go forward under a state gambling law that requires local approval of road improvements and other services for a potential casino.

Residents voted Monday for incumbent Lorraine Brue and former state Rep. Ginny Coppola, who both oppose any preliminary talks with Wynn.

Wynn has proposed the resort on land leased from New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

Incumbent board chairman Larry Harrington and school committee member Martha Slattery who favored talks were the losing candidates.
