Aquinnah Wampanoag Tribe identifies potential casino sites

The Aquinnah Wampanoag Tribe has identified three potential gaming sites in Massachusetts.

The tribe met with officials in Freetown and Lakeville on Thursday to discuss a 500-acre site that includes property in both towns. “We’re hopeful that this property’s location is something that the town would be interested in pursuing,” Chairwoman Cheryl Andrews-Maltais told The Taunton Daily Gazette.

Freetown has scheduled a May 29 vote on the proposed casino. Leaders in Lakeville are considering a June 2 election.

The tribe is meeting today with leaders in Fall River to discuss a gaming site there.
