Mass. gambling board chief urges end to dispute

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - The head of the state gambling commission is urging Boston Mayor Tom Menino and Las Vegas casino mogul Steve Wynn to end their public spat over a proposed casino in Everett.

Stephen Crosby, chairman of the state gambling commission, tells The Boston Globe the dispute "makes everything look disorganized or suspect or political" and reflects poorly on the state's casino license process.

Menino and Wynn are arguing over whether Boston qualifies, under the 2011 state casino law, as a "host community" for Wynn's $1.3 billion casino proposal on the Mystic River waterfront in Everett. Boston officials say part of the project may be in the city.

If part of Wynn's project is in Boston, Menino could block it. Menino favors a competing plan at Suffolk Downs in East Boston.
