Palmer’s State Representative

Massachusetts House Speaker Robert DeLeo is expected to formally propose Thursday that the state allow construction of two resort-style casinos, as well as the installation of slot machines at the state’s four racetracks. But there is a lack of consensus on the issue in the communities around Palmer, where the owners of Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun have proposed building a casino. And as WFCR’s Bob Paquette reports, that’s putting their local representative on the spot.
