Question of the Day: Casino Thoughts
What are your thoughts on the possibility of a casino at Raynham Park?
Beginning in June, we'll be asking Easton Patch readers a different question every weekday at noon. Questions could range from local decisions made by officials, to state issues, to national politics and entertainment. Whatever it is, we want to know what EASTON thinks! To answer, use our comments section below.
Last week, the Cape Cod Times reported that the Mashpee Womponoags were in discussions with the owners of Raynham Park, just over the Easton-Raynham town line, about possible plans to build a casino in Raynham.
The tribe had previously eyed land on route 44 in Middleborough and rumors have floated about different locations the Womponoags could create a casino. Easton Board of Selectmen Chair Colleen Corona said the possibility of a casino just over the town-line is something that Easton officials "needed to keep an eye on."
What are your thoughts on a possible casino at Raynham Park? Do you think it would be harmful for Easton? Beneficial to Easton? Why?
