Not all in Everett willing to gamble on casino
As Las Vegas casino mogul Steve Wynn eyes Everett for a possible resort-style gambling complex, the potential development is stirring a mostly cautious response from city leaders. Common Councilor Cynthia Sarnie, whose Ward 6 includes the Monsanto site being looked at, said at least for now, she opposes casino development. “I do understand that it does bring in jobs and taxes . . . but I’m looking at the quality of life we have to deal with and what is going to happen to that,” she said. The city is inviting residents to an open forum on the proposed development at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Connolly Center, 90 Chelsea St.
