Anti-casino Group Demands Debates With Springfield's Mayor
An anti-casino group in Springfield Massachusetts is demanding debates with the city’s mayor before next months’ casino referendum.
Citizens Against Casino Gaming joined by representatives of the anti-poverty group Arise For Social Justice, called on Mayor Domenic Sarno to publicly debate the pros and cons of the proposed casino complex. Springfield voters will give the $800 million development proposed by MGM Resorts an up or down decision on July 16th. Sarno rejected an earlier debate appeal saying the anti-casino group should “take it up with MGM” Sarno has been featured in MGM ads and spoke at an MGM campaign rally.
The anti-casino organization plans a campaign rally on June 26.
