Foxborough Selectmen Want a Casino Meeting

(Updated March 18)

The Foxborough Board of Selectmen will be looking to hold another forum at the high school on the Wynn Resorts plan to build a casino on Route 1 on land owned by Robert Kraft.

Chairman Lawrence Harrington wanted to hear from resident Marc Todd, who wrote a letter to the board asking them to look into forming a negotiation team to be prepared for the casino project to go forward, but was advised by town manager Kevin Paicos not to continue the discussion because it wasn't on the agenda and was a violation of the opening meeting law.

Todd has expressed his opposition to the casino. (His letter to the board of the selection is on Foxborough Patch.)

"We need to be more of the leaders that we were voted in to be," said selectman Lynda A. Walsh. "(We have) to prepare ourselves for what is coming down the road."

Harrington wanted to allow Todd to speak at Tuesday's selectmen's meeting, but was advised by town manager Kevin Paicos not to continue the discussion because it wasn't on the agenda and was a violation of the opening meeting law.

Harrington said he also received a letter from Stephanie Crimmins of Say No to Foxborough Casino group.
