CT1More than 400 people gathered at the South Boston Convention Center on Tuesday, March 25, to sound off at the public input hearing on the Revere Mohegan Sun casino project in front of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC). Residents from all over Boston, Winthrop, Revere, Chelsea , Everett and the Greater Boston region spoke to the MGC for up to five minutes each about their views on the casino being allowed to be built. Charlestown City Councillor Sal LaMattina  spoke in favor of the casino, but like Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, took the controversial stand in saying that Boston should be a host city for the project. Meanwhile,  MGC members (left to right) Steve Crosby, Enrique Zuniga and Bruce Stebbins had their hands full with almost 400 people in attendance, 150 of whom wanted to speak.
