Casino forum site shifted

The site for next week's "forum on the benefits and disadvantages of building a resort-style casino at Suffolk Downs" has been changed to the Don Orione Hall at 150 Orient Ave. The event, scheduled for June 30 at 6:30 p.m. and sponsored by the East Boston Times, will feature a discussion between proponents and opponents of the issue. Details can be found at Neighbors of Suffolk Downs.

In the meantime, former AG Scott Harshbarger outlines a few questions that need to be asked -- and answered -- before the state lurches ahead with casino gambling.

Thanks Jim.
You beat me to it.

There's a lot of interest. I have confirmation that Sen. Petruccelli and Rep. Basile will be attending.

There has also been interest from the candidates for Governor, including from Gov. Patrick's office.
