I'm disappointed in today's decision by the Gaming Commission. The Commission's announcement seemed predetermined because after three hours of testimony, they only took ten minutes to arrive at a decision. I have said -- and I truly believe -- that Boston is a host community to both sites, and I intend to continue to do everything in my power to protect our best interests. The people of East Boston and Charlestown deserve the opportunity to vote. Tomorrow, I will meet with my legal team to evaluate all of the options available to us right now. We have not made a decision about our next step, but we will share developments as they are available.
