rockinghamSalem voters overwhelmingly said yes to the non-binding casino referendum.

NO: 1,074

“We are very pleased that the citizens of Salem demonstrated their support for a casino at Rockingham Park in such overwhelming numbers.
Attaining over 80% support is a testament to the leadership in this community, across town government and the non-profit and private sectors. That’s because the people of Salem have a century-long relationship with The Rock and they know it can once again be a catalyst for thousands of jobs, economic development and a provider of sustainable revenue for years to come.
Salem has made a historically, strong statement to Concord that it’s a ready and willing participant for a casino. Salem also has put Massachusetts on notice that it’s deep, strong support of Rockingham Park provides a competitive mix that will be very difficult for Bay State operators to match.” Rich Killion, Millennium spokesperson
