Latest: May 8, 2014 Statement of Mayor Martin J. Walsh

Based on the ambiguous and arbitrary process the Gaming Commission has pursued, we believe that we have multiple options available to us at this time.

We are continuing to work aggressively to determine the appropriate action to continue our fight for the people of Boston. My position has not changed: Boston is a host community to both sites, and the people of Boston -- of Charlestown and East Boston -- deserve the opportunity to vote and have their voices heard.

Statement of Mayor Martin J. Walsh

In response to the decision made by the Gaming Commission

I'm disappointed in today's decision by the Gaming Commission. The Commission's announcement seemed predetermined because after three hours of testimony, they only took ten minutes to arrive at a decision. I have said -- and I truly believe -- that Boston is a host community to both sites, and I intend to continue to do everything in my power to protect our best interests. The people of East Boston and Charlestown deserve the opportunity to vote.

Tomorrow, I will meet with my legal team to evaluate all of the options available to us right now. We have not made a decision about our next step, but we will share developments as they are available.
