Election roundup: Walsh says don't sue Everett casino guy, talk to him

The Herald reports on a debate this morning between Marty Walsh, who is all about the Suffolk Downs casino, and Dan Conley, who says the entire city should vote on it and, if it rejects the idea, he'd sue to block any casino in Everett. Walsh said the only way to protect Charlestown is to negotiate with the developer of the proposed Everett casino. Conley said the state casino law is fundamentally flawed.

WBUR wonders if John Barros can convince anybody outside Dudley Street, where he long captained a neighborhood improvement group, to vote for him.

The Herald wonders if Felix Arroyo can pull a Ray Flynn and win an election with almost no money.

The Globe wonders if voters are too dumb to tell the difference between Dan Conley and John Connolly - after all, both come from Galway stock. David Bernstein proposes we start calling them Danley and Johnolly instead.

Somebody is getting tired of candidate tweets about the great times they're having at block parties and festivals.

Of course the casino law is fundamentally flawed

Hey! Let's respond to pent-up demand by building only three, because that will be good for immediate traffic! And that $400,000 non-refundable application fee is totally inclusive to all developers other than the wealthiest ones!

He doesn't feel sorry for criminals and he has common sense. Vote Conley and don't think twice.

Conley's office throws the

By on

Conley's office throws the book at low level drug users and makes deals with larger dealers and violent criminals. And now he is putting his face on any law enforcement face he deems worthy, this includes jumping in during the first Marathon Bombing press conference to assure that his office would be heavily involved and prosecute to the greatest extent available. This was right after the investigation was declared a FEDERAL CASE!!

Why should the whole City vote on this?

By on

and don't tell me it effects the whole City. Just like the Convention Center in South Boston effects the whole City. There are enough people in Boston who like to tell everyone else how to live, we don't need them to tell us where to go to play Blackjack.

Okay, I won't tell you that

Okay, I won't tell you that it effects the whole city. But it does affect the whole city, as well as other neighboring cities and towns.

Marty Walsh has folks working for him who are paid consultants for Wynn. Besides the fact that all unions especially Teamsters Local 25 want the Casinos, if not Eastie then Everett.
