All of Boston should vote on a Suffolk Downs casino

If a Suffolk Downs casino is win-win for all of Boston, why can’t all of Boston vote on it?

Under the state’s new gambling law, large cities like Boston can limit a vote to the wards in which a casino would be located. In the case of Suffolk Downs, that means only voters in Revere and East Boston must endorse the proposal for a $1 billion, 163-acre gambling resort casino, dubbed “an urban oasis” by its promoters.
