MGM Resorts Statement: Election Night Decision

"MGM Resorts International would like to thank voters across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for their support of the billions of dollars of economic benefits and 10,000 permanent job opportunities provided by the Gaming Act of 2011. Today’s vote showed us that people really understood what was at stake. Our gratitude is likely surpassed only by that of the City of Springfield, and its people, who have demonstrated inspirational resolve and commitment for a brighter future throughout the entire process. Together, we can now begin the work of rebuilding a great downtown, and igniting a renaissance in Western Massachusetts.

James Murren
MGM Resorts International
Chairman and CEO
