Statement from Mohegan Sun
November 26, 2013 - Like so many people in Palmer, we were deeply disappointed in the results of the November 5th referendum - which were confirmed with today's recount. For more than five years we were committed to Palmer and believed in our project's ability to deliver a promising future - with more than $16 million in annual revenue, thousands of new jobs, new opportunities for small business and economic development throughout the region.
Despite these benefits, we know Palmer is sharply divided on the issue of casino gaming. We accept and respect the results of today's recount and want to thank all of our supporters and volunteers for their tremendous dedication and hard work. We are also very grateful to the Town Clerk, her staff and dedicated volunteers for their hard work on Election Day and during today's recount. We wish Palmer the best and remain committed to exploring commercial development there that will benefit the entire community.
