    Casino proposals in East Boston, Palmer voted down
    BOSTON (AP) -- Casino supporters in the state were dealt twin setbacks on Tuesday as voters in East Boston rejected a proposal by the Suffolk Downs race track and voters in Palmer narrowly defeating a bid by Mohegan Sun to build a resort casino in the western Massachusetts town.

    The results promise to dramatically alter the casino landscape in the state, where a 2011 gambling law allows for up to three regional resort casinos.

    Voters in Revere approved the Suffolk Downs casino in a separate referendum Tuesday, but favorable votes were needed in both East Boston and Revere before the track could formally apply to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission for a license.

    "On behalf of the hundreds of volunteers, supporters and employees of Suffolk Downs, we want to thank the people of Revere for their overwhelming vote of confidence in our project. We believe that the people of Revere voted for jobs and a boost to their economy," said Chip Tuttle, chief operating officer of Suffolk Downs.

    "We thank the people of East Boston for allowing us to state our case for thousands of jobs for local residents and we appreciate the support we received," he said.

    Tuttle added that Suffolk Downs, which straddles East Boston and Revere, would now "reassess" its plans. Revere Mayor Dan Rizzo said he had preliminary conversations about relocating the casino proposal so it would fit entirely within his city.
