Menino objects to phasing in casino at track

Wants Suffolk Downs plan completed in 1 shot

Mayor Thomas M. Menino is objecting to plans by Suffolk Downs to develop its proposed $1 billion casino resort in phases, with slot ­machines and table games coming first and resort-­style amenities following later.

“I will not support a phased-in casino,” the mayor said in a Globe interview Tuesday. “The product that is right for us in Boston is a full ­resort destination that provides complete economic development for the area.”
