Milford

Casino foes to host forum Oct. 30

Continue reading below

Casino-Free Milford is holding a public forum on the local Foxwoods proposal Wednesday at 7 p.m. in Town Hall. Organizers say the event is intended for town residents “who have lingering questions” about the town’s host community agreement with Foxwoods, or the developer’s plans to build a $1 billion resort casino next to Interstate 495 and Route 16. The forum will include speakers and a chance for residents to ask questions. Among those making presentations will be psychologist Tom Larkin, who will talk about the social costs of casino gambling; former US representative Robert Steele of Connecticut, who will share experiences from his congressional district, which includes the communities surrounding the Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun gambling complexes; town Finance Committee member David Morganelli, a tax lawyer who will discuss the host community agreement and what he considers its lack of protections; and Board of Selectmen chairman William D. Buckley, who has opposed the casino from the start and will share his opinions regarding its potential impact on Milford. A special election on the host community agreement is scheduled for Nov. 19; the deadline for residents to register to vote in the binding referendum is Wednesday.
