Foxborough Votes In Favor of Anti-Casino Board Members

The new casino law in Massachusetts means that a town’s board of selectmen has the power to choose whether the town will open negotiations with a casino developer. And last night, Foxborough voters gave a pretty resounding “Nay” for a casino by filling in the two available seats with casino opponents: Virginia M. Coppola, who was elected with 3,608 votes, and Lorraine Brue, who was re-elected with 3,500 votes. The Foxborough board of selectmen now stands at 4-1 in opposition to opening up negotiations with Kraft/Wynn. [WBUR]
