Kraft ‘Troubled’ That Sincerity Questioned In Casino Proposal

FOXBORO (CBS) – Foxboro’s Board of Selectmen will discuss a proposed casino on Route 1 across from Gillette Stadium Tuesday night.

It’s expected to be a heated debate.

The town’s advisory committee is expected to recommend that the Board of Selectmen poll Foxboro residents to find out what they really think about the casino.

But there is a growing push for the board to shoot down the plan before giving Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Las Vegas developer Steve Wynn a plan to present it publicly.

In a letter sent to the Foxboro Patch and Foxboro Reporter last night, Kraft wrote:

It is personally troubling to me that some are questioning my sincerity regarding whether I believe the proposed resort would be a positive for the Town. I am not motivated to do anything that would devalue the character of the community in which my family has chosen to invest the majority of our assets.

It’s unclear if any vote will take place tonight.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at Foxboro High School.
