Adelson considers Massachusetts casino

2 August 2007

BOSTON, Massachusetts -- As reported by the Worcester Telegram & Gazette: "While the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe presses forward with its plan to build a casino in Middleboro, Sheldon Adelson, majority shareholder and chief executive officer of Las Vegas Sands Corp., told the Telegram & Gazette yesterday that he remains interested in building a resort-style casino "in the Marlboro area," off Interstate 495.

"'It's up to the government, the governor and the Legislature,' Mr. Adelson said of the decisions facing the state over whether to allow casino gambling. His comments came after a two-hour private meeting at the Statehouse yesterday with House Speaker Salvatore F. DiMasi, D-Boston, who has opposed expanded gaming in the state in the past.

"...He emphasized that he spoke with Mr. DiMasi about the pending decisions over casinos yesterday, both as a concerned resident and a casino developer.

"...Asked if he was preparing to develop a full-scale resort casino here at this point, he said, 'If the state wants to do it, yeah.'..."
