Neighbors of Suffolk Downs

East Boston Winthrop Revere Chelsea Lynn of Suffolk Downs

November 14, 2011 - East Boston, MA - The Jeffries Point Neighborhood Association will host State Senator Anthony Petruccelli (D-East Boston) and State Representative Carlo Basile (D-East Boston) during their monthly meeting, tonight at 7:00 PM at the Jeffries Point Yacht Club, 565 Sumner St. E. Boston, Ma. 02128 617-500-7865.

The pair are supporters of the legislation that is due out of committee later this week before the legislature goes out on a seven week hiatus. They also attended a recent meeting of the Eagle Hill Civic Association on the same topic. They were met with vocal opposition from community members who asked whether, they had considered the long term impacts on our community. "Doesn't East Boston do enough for the state?", one member asked, "We have the tunnels and the airport; we don't need this in our neighborhood."

David Monge, a life long East Boston resident, father of four and member of the opposition group, Neighbors Of Suffolk Downs commented, "We don't need anything that comes with a mitigation plan. We have enough to mitigate already in East Boston without the prospect of a casino in the mix." This sentiment was shared by most of the attendees, in fact, no one spoke up in favor of a planned casino at Suffolk Downs.

"Casinos may be a nice place to visit, but no one wants to live there and that's the prospect we're faced with in our community," said John Ribeiro, president of Neighbors of Suffolk Downs. "Casino proponents have been trying to move this bill quickly and quietly through the legislature and tonight may be the final opportunity for the people of East Boston to let their representatives know how they feel on this critical issue."

The Jeffries Point Neighborhood Association will hold its monthly meeting tonight, Monday, November 14th, 2011 at 7:00 PM. The meeting will be held at the Jeffries Point Yacht Club 565 Sumner St. E. Boston, Ma. 02128 617-500-7865
