Everett mayor backtracks on Wynn lease agreement

Mayor Carlo DeMaria Jr. of Everett said Thursday that he spoke too soon when he stated at a public meeting earlier this week that Las Vegas casino ­mogul Steve Wynn had entered into a lease with the owners of a 37-acre parcel on the Mystic ­River to build a $1 billion resort casino.

In a written statement, DeMaria said he had referred to “a lease that was entered into by Wynn Resorts and the private property owners of the former Monstanto site in the City of Everett.”
