West Springfield Rejects Hard Rock Casino

(West Springfield, MA) — West Springfield voters have rejected a plan by Hard Rock New England to build a casino on the grounds of the Big E. Yesterday’s referendum lost by a 55-to-45 percent vote. Hard Rock spent about a million-dollars trying to drum up support. Opponents spent only about 18-hundred. The vote leaves MGM in Springfield competing with Mohegan Sun in Palmer for the sole Western Mass casino license.
