(A Press Release from Jobs For Foxboro.)
Jobs for Foxboro Wednesday launched its local website in support of the proposed Wynn Foxborough destination resort casino in Foxboro. JobsforFoxboro.com offers updated news about local events, studies related to legalized gaming and resort destination casinos, and other information.
Jobs for Foxboro represents Foxboro residents who believe that the proposed casino, which promises significant capital investment on Route 1, more job creation than any other casino project in Massachusetts, and $10 million to $15 million in estimated new annual taxes for the Town of Foxborough, is an appropriate facility that will provide sustainable economic growth for the town and the region.
Wynn Resorts has said it will create 4,000 permanent jobs and thousands of additional jobs in construction and related businesses. The proposed resort would deliver amenities such as a luxury hotel, a convention center, a luxury spa, fine and casual dining establishments, a performance arts theater, and high-end retail shops and boutiques.
About Jobs for Foxboro
Jobs for Foxboro supports the resort destination concept unveiled by Wynn Resorts. The organization is comprised of Foxboro residents and is committed to engaging the Town about the potential benefits and issues associated with a mixed-use destination convention hotel and casino. As a best-in-class operator of resort destinations, Wynn Resorts is capable of delivering thousands of sustainable jobs to the region and creating a lasting revenue stream for the town that provides a secure financial future for Foxboro.
By engaging in positive dialogue about the potential benefits and issues associated with the proposed development and gathering credible, verifiable third-party research regarding the impacts of destination resort casinos (such as the National Gambling Impact Study conducted by a panel of leading academics and experts under the direction on the President, the Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority Leader), town residents will be best able to make an informed decision at a town-wide referendum.
