Nutter is Pleased with Wynn's New Job at Foxwoods Casino
by KYW’s Mike Dunn'
This week's announcement that Las Vegas Casino mogul Steve Wynn will become managing partner for the trouble Foxwoods casino is drawing a cautious thumbs-up from Mayor Nutter.
Mayor Nutter says Steve Wynn's reputation gives some cause for comfort that Foxwoods will be done right:"It’s about a reputation that is about high quality that is about performance, about actually running casinos."
But Nutter says it remains to be seen how Wynn will address the longstanding problems posed by Foxwoods on South Delaware Avenue, such as traffic and parking:"To the extent that they can make adjustments to what the original proposal was to accommodate those concerns, that'll certainly be fruitful, and we'll see what happens."
Wynn and Foxwoods officials appear before the state Gaming Control Board this coming Wednesday.
