"funds from casinos and the slots go to local aid"

With the talk of casinos possible in the area (Foxborough or Milford), the Milford Daily News reports on a meeting of residents to prepare:

“We need to be able to act quickly, and we need to be able to act in concert,” state Rep. Carolyn Dykema told a packed auditorium at the middle school. 
The Holliston Democrat and two other legislators hosted the forum to explain how area communities can protect themselves if a casino lands in their backyards.

“We’d like to talk more about mitigation and less about just say no,” Holliston selectmen Chairman Jay Marsden said.
