No Support for Expanded Gaming in Hopkinton

The Board of Selectmen held an open forum on Wednesday night to discuss the newly revived bill for expanded gaming at the State House and to gather input from residents how they felt about a possible casino in Milford.

Before the discussion was opened up to community members, Selectman Chair Todd Cestari asked his fellow board members to weigh in briefly. None of the board members supported expanded gaming and all were concerned with the possibility of a casino locating in the neighboring town of Milford.
