Democratic Massachusetts gubernatorial contender Steve Grossman on his opposition to casino repeal e

The nation has a long history of embracing gambling and prohibiting it. The stage is set for a multimillion-dollar campaign pitting the casino industry and its allies in organized labor against a coalition of grass-roots activists, religious leaders and mom-and-pop businesses. Since then, 23 states have approved commercial casinos. Even Gov. Barrow said. It lacks the resources of the casinos. The campaign to repeal casinos maintains that the promise of jobs and prosperity is hollow. Crosby, was accused of conflicts of interest, and although he said he could be impartial, he eventually recused himself from all decisions involving the Boston-area license. The process of awarding a license for the Boston area, the last untapped big market in the Northeast and by far the most lucrative in Massachusetts, has been especially convoluted and is still underway; the gaming commission is to name the winner by Sept. Construction has begun there, but if the repeal measure is defeated, the slots parlor is not due to open until next year. The steady drumbeat of bad news from Atlantic City has also caused concern here. What critics do believe is that casinos will destroy their communities with more crime, traffic and addiction and that Massachusetts should not rely on a predatory industry to improve its economy because it will only fail. And the tortuous process of awarding casino licenses here has dragged on for three years, with no tangible benefits. After corruption scandals led to bans on casinos and lotteries in the mids and again in the early s, states brought them back, most recently during the Depression in the s to stimulate the economy. Polls here show that support for casinos, favored late last year by a ratio of two to one, has ebbed. Despite this grim environment, casino advocates here express confidence that they will prevail. Four of its 12 casinos are shutting down this year, putting 8, people out of work, even as casino fever intensifies near New York City. Barrow, a political scientist at the University of Texas-Pan American who studies gambling. Now it may be the first to reverse itself, with voters deciding in November whether to repeal the law before a single casino has been built. Home Page World U.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} The commission has awarded the sole slots parlor license to Penn National Gaming in Plainville. But it has not formally issued the license because that would force MGM to start paying millions of dollars in obligations, and the company wants to hold off until after the November vote. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}BOSTON — With the casino industry showing signs of retrenchment, voters in Massachusetts may do something that voters nowhere else have done, at least in the last century: slam on the brakes on casino gambling. Why is Massachusetts having second thoughts? Now they are laying the groundwork for an all-out, statewide donnybrook that will burst into public view in September in television ads and on doorsteps as both sides try to secure support, house by house. He said his side had been outspent to 1 on the casino referendum in East Boston in November and still pulled off a surprising victory. Because MGM is delaying construction of its casino in Springfield until after the November vote, the pro-casino campaign is focusing on the slots parlor in Plainville, where construction is underway and television ads are being shot. Deval Patrick, who helped push through the casino legislation, has said he would vote against a casino near his home. Massachusetts was one of the last states to climb aboard the casino craze, approving legislation in to allow three casinos and a slots parlor. And Massachusetts gamblers continued to plunk their money down in other states. But since then, the economy has improved. The debate has unfolded against a backdrop of bleak forecasts for the industry. Still, Darek Barcikowski, the campaign manager for the repeal group, is optimistic. Atlantic City is plagued with problems , many of them caused by competition from casinos in neighboring states. The anti-casino campaign, called Repeal the Casino Deal , acknowledges that it faces an uphill battle. In July, Fitch Ratings said industry weakness would persist , citing the saturation of regional markets, stagnant wages among lower-income players and the growth of online gambling. More people still back them than oppose them, but support has dropped to about 50 percent, with 8 percent to 10 percent undecided. Some states have rejected them, but analysts say no state in recent times has spurned them after legalizing them. The commission chairman, Stephen P. Red flags have been raised about the overall health of the casino industry. The two sides have already squared off in several town-by-town referendums across much of Massachusetts over the last year, fighting each other to a near draw. It says casinos will not bring a net gain of jobs but a net loss, that people will spend their discretionary income at the casinos and sap local businesses, forcing them to lay off workers. When the legislature voted to allow casinos, the state was limping through a nationwide recession.
