American Gaming Association Statement on Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Ruling

Press Release | 06.24.2014

Washington, DC – American Gaming Association President and CEO Geoff Freeman released the following statement after the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled on the casino repeal question:

“While it’s up to Massachusetts to decide whether or not to welcome the thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in revenues gaming will bring to the Commonwealth, the AGA will ensure that voters have the facts about our industry instead of tired stereotypes. Gaming positively affects communities by creating thousands of jobs paying well above the minimum wage, helping small businesses grow and contributing millions of dollars in vital revenues for public services, such as education and safety. Massachusetts could soon discover what communities across the nation already know: that gaming serves as valued community partners and as one component of a strategic, multifaceted economic development plan.”
