Foxboro elects two candidates who oppose casino plans
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (WHDH) -- Voters in Foxborough made their voices heard on Monday night, saying “no dice” to bringing a casino to their town.
Two candidates opposing a casino were elected to the board of selectman. The new members are expected to set the tone for the board as they take on the casino proposal.
Back in December, the board was split three to two, with the majority blocking casino negotiations.
"This is a great day for Foxborough. I think the citizens have obviously sent their message that they don't want a casino in Foxborough, and hopefully now going forward we can get back to our regular business," said Lorraine Brue, elected board member.
The town clerk said Monday’s election had an extremely high turnout.
