Gaming commission chairman says Everett casino interest good for competition

Stephen Crosby, chairman of the State Gaming Commission, said developer Steve Wynn’s ­interest in building a casino in Everett could stir competition for the one casino license available in Eastern Massachusetts.

“We’ve been encouraging competition across the state,” Crosby said in a brief interview Wednesday, following his ­address to the North Shore Chamber of Commerce in ­Danvers. “I think the public will be much better served if there is more than one proposal.”
