WCVB reports Revere voters have once again approved a Suffolk Downs casino, this time one entirely within their city limits and run by Mohegan Sun.
The vote doesn't guarantee the $1.3-billion resort casino will be built, but instead means the state gaming commission will now choose between Suffolk Downs and a competing Wynn proposal in Everett.
Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria dissed his neighbor to the east:
There’s no comparing Everett’s near-90% margin of victory to tonight's vote in Revere, just as there’s no comparison to Wynn’s 5-star brand, international drawing power or financial strength in the industry. Wynn's transformative impact and unmatched economic development opportunity for Everett and Massachusetts is without parallel in the region. ...
The people of Everett already know what is becoming increasingly clear every day - a Wynn Resort in Everett the best choice for every resident in Massachusetts, today and for decades to come.
