Last night, June 6, 2017, the Connecticut State House of Representatives voted on a bill which makes a casino coming to East Windsor very likely. A casino located on the vacant Showcase Cinema site at the corner of Route 140 and Route 5 will result in a significant increase in our Grand List.
In addition, it will bring well-paying jobs to the North Central region of Connecticut. We are excited to partner with the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribal nations and our surrounding towns to rebuild this region of Connecticut.
We are already working with Windsor Locks on a vision for Transit Oriented Development. We will start the process of developing a plan, built on a casino in East Windsor and a second rail in Windsor Locks, to move Central Connecticut forward and provide for the health and well-being of the people in our region.
