Revere Casino Proposal
To some, the proposal to build a casino on the Revere side of Suffolk Downs is a godsend that will deliver jobs and much needed revenue. To others, it’s a curse that comes with traffic headaches and threatens small business. Next week, the issue goes to a citywide referendum, and both sides are working hard to sway voters.
Father George Szal is the pastor of Immaculate Conception Church in Revere and the leader of an interfaith coalition against the casino plan.
