East Windsor Tapped As Site For Proposed Third Connecticut Casino

Mar 3, 2017

East Windsor is one step closer to having a casino after the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes selected the town as the site of a possible third gaming facility in Connecticut.

This hour, we ask, how will this plan transform East Windsor and the region? 

The town’s Board of Selectmen fully support the project-voting unanimously in favor. First Selectman Robert Maynard joins us and we hear from an East Windsor resident who believes a casino will be bad news for the town’s future.

Do you think a third Connecticut casino will usher in the promise of jobs and sustained growth? Or will it be detrimental to local communities?

Plus, Major League Baseball is in the midst of a rule change that has baseball purists up in arms.
