Boston could use casino revenue

To the Editor:

I am hoping that Metro Boston elected officials will work hard to sway the Gaming Commission in bringing a casino to Suffolk Downs over Foxboro. The people of Boston stand to benefit far more from the increased business, tax revenue, and job creation that the proposed casino will bring. Robert Kraft wants to make his stadium/mall complex more profitable by building a casino across the street.

I’m a big Pats fan, but let’s bring this economic opportunity to Boston where the city, its business, and people will benefit most.
