Vote Set On Mohegan Sun Palmer Casino Project

The Town Council in Palmer, Massachusetts has endorsed a casino development agreement with Mohegan Sun.  The Connecticut-based casino operator is proposing a $1 billion development in the rural town.  It is one of three projects competing for the lone casino license available in western Massachusetts. WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Town Councilor Paul Burns, who has been a long-time supporter of a casino project in Palmer.
