Conley. But Conley’s announcement this week that he supports a citywide referendum on a casino at Suffolk Downs, a break with Menino and East Boston lawmakers, may cost him Basile’s backing. Basile, who helped author legislation aimed at confining the vote to East Boston, said he was contemplating pulling his endorsement. 'This is just too big of an issue in my community,' he said."
