This week, Connecticut’s two federally recognized Native American tribes picked East Windsor as the site of a third casino in the state. The gambling complex would be just 13 miles from the MGM casino that’s under construction in Springfield, and that’s not an accident. The Mohegan and Mashantucket Pequot tribes are looking to fend off the new competition.
The new casino could be built right off Interstate 91, at the site of an abandoned movie theater. That’s where we spoke to the First Selectman of East Windsor, Bob Maynard.
