After election, Kraft, Wynn abandon casino bid

One day after voters elected two anti-casino members to Foxborough’s board of selectmen, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and casino developer Steve Wynn announced today they are suspending plans to build a destination casino on land Kraft owns in the town.

“With Monday’s election, we believe the citizens of Foxborough have spoken,’’ the Kraft Group said this afternoon in a statement. “As we originally committed, we have heard them and respect their collective voice. With that democratic statement, as opposed to the voices of five individuals, we will be suspending our efforts regarding a destination resort development.’’
