A Casino Near Somerville: What Do You Think?

Everett wants a casino. What do you want?

After casino mogul Steve Wynn held a press conference last week in Everett about the possibility of building a casino in that city—just across the river from Somerville's Assembly Square—Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone told the Boston Globe a casino would come to Somerville "over my dead body."

It seems Everett is keen on landing a gambling establishment. Even earlier in November, before meeting with Wynn, that city's mayor, Carlo DeMaria, said he was in talks with Hard Rock International to build a casino.

When we polled Somerville readers last year about casinos coming to Massachusetts, most said they didn't want them. Most of Somerville's state legislators were also against casinos.

Now, with the possibility of a casino coming to a community right next to Somerville, we're curious what you're all thinking. Do you want Everett to get a casino? Would it impact Somerville and the region, or would its influence be contained to Everett? If there were a casino in Everett, would you go?
