The chairman of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission has responded to a letter sent by state Representative Carolyn Dykema, a Holliston Democrat, writing that the commission is “fully aware of the changes and proposed changes in the makeup of the Crossroads Massachusetts application” for a proposed $1 billion casino complex in Milford. Dykema’s office released a copy of the response from commission chairman Stephen P. Crosby. An opponent of the propoposal, she had contacted the panel with questions on the validity of the license application filed with the state, including whether it listed members of the Foxwoods Resort Casino board of directors as “qualifiers” necessitating background checks. In his response, Crosby wrote that the list of principals involved in the casino proposal was up to date at the time of the application’s filing, and that updated lists of newly added qualifiers will be released monthly, with the next update due “no later than the first week of May.” He also wrote that the commission’s deadlines to complete background investigations are “fluid” and that the thoroughness of the process will not be compromised for speed. The letter concluded by stating, “I assure you that all applicants and all qualifiers will be thoroughly vetted before a determination of suitability or unsuitability is made by the Commission.”
