The non-gambling group called United to Stop Slots in Massachusetts scored major points last week during a visit from Gov. Deval Patrick (pictured).
Following the visit, Patrick announced that although he didn’t agree with all their positions regarding the expansion of gambling in the Bay State, Patrick stated his opposition to slot parlors and racinos.
Patrick even suggested that House Speaker Robert DeLeo and Senate President Therese Murray also meet with the group to hear their anti-slots arguments.
Not affected by his comments was his desire to expand gambling by licensing some three or four casinos in various parts of the state.
