Foxwoods is a HUGE corporation. Their interests are self-serving. They NEED and WANT to be here for the money.....but, what about the collateral damage that will result from the stigma of being termed a casino-town? Homeowners who have invested a lifetime of savings into their "nest-egg" will lose.....and lose BIG!
Russ: The risk from Milford casino
Thirty years ago my husband and I moved to Milford from out-of-state, purchased a home and raised our children. This home represents our only wealth in the world. I am 67 years old and still work part-time. We continue to pay a mortgage after using home equity to put our girls through college. A gargantuan resort casino less than a mile from my back door will dash the value of our home and property enormously. I have asked many people if they would purchase my home after a casino is built; the answer is always “no”.
So who is to really benefit from the casino; not the folks hired for the part-time service jobs, nor the property-owning residents who will see their life-long investments go down the drain. We cannot afford to take the risk.
