“Preserving the Character of Foxboro”
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
We are thrilled to report that Kraft/ Wynn have officially announced they are not moving forward with a casino in Foxboro.
Thank you, thank, you, thank you, to all of you for everything that you have done over the past 5 months. Every time we asked for help, you responded more than we ever could have hoped for. For that we are eternally grateful.
In particular, thank you for assisting at and attending our open houses, for writing letters, putting up signs, making donations, talking to your neighbors, supporting Ginny and Lorraine, sharing the video, etc, etc, etc.
Together we have done what many thought was impossible- and we did it on a shoestring budget, with our collective passion, heart and soul.
We would like to take this opportunity to recognize and thank Mr. Kraft as well, for listening to the residents of Foxboro and for his generosity to the town. We look forward to a positive and productive relationship with the town going forward.
Finally, we look forward to supporting all the members of the Board of Selectmen and the collective community as we all work together to build a better future in this town that we are so proud to call home.
Enjoy pulling the CasiNO sign from your lawn. If you wish you may drop them off at 6 Birch Tree Road, Foxboro as we plan on passing them on to other organizations that may need them in the future.
Statement from The Kraft Group:
“When the Commonwealth of Massachusetts passed gaming legislation, we brought forth an opportunity with the unquestioned premier developer and operator in the industry. We have the greatest respect for Steve Wynn, his team and his business model, and believe this unique opportunity was worthy of a chance to be heard. With Monday’s election, we believe the citizens of Foxborough have spoken. As we originally committed, we have heard them and respect their collective voice. With that democratic statement, as opposed to the voices of five individuals, we will be suspending our efforts regarding a destination resort development. We thank all of the residents who reached out and participated in a dialogue about the future of the Town and thank Wynn Resorts for their interest in Foxborough.”
Statement from Wynn Resorts:
“For the past six months, Wynn Resorts has sought to communicate the benefits of a proposed destination resort in Foxborough. Yesterday’s election demonstrates the community’s will and Wynn Resorts respects the outcome. We would like to thank all the Foxborough residents who supported the proposed resort and reached out to discuss the opportunity. We also would like to extend our gratitude to Robert Kraft and The Kraft Group for the introduction to the Town of Foxborough and support on this project.”
