Jobs For Foxboro Launches Website

JobsforFoxboro.com offers residents access to information.

(A Press Release from Jobs For Foxboro.)

Jobs for Foxboro Wednesday launched its local website in support of the proposed Wynn Foxborough destination resort casino in Foxboro. JobsforFoxboro.com offers updated news about local events, studies related to legalized gaming and resort destination casinos, and other information.

Jobs for Foxboro represents Foxboro residents who believe that the proposed casino, which promises significant capital investment on Route 1, more job creation than any other casino project in Massachusetts, and $10 million to $15 million in estimated new annual taxes for the Town of Foxborough, is an appropriate facility that will provide sustainable economic growth for the town and the region.

Wynn Resorts has said it will create 4,000 permanent jobs and thousands of additional jobs in construction and related businesses. The proposed resort would deliver amenities such as a luxury hotel, a convention center, a luxury spa, fine and casual dining establishments, a performance arts theater, and high-end retail shops and boutiques.

About Jobs for Foxboro

Jobs for Foxboro supports the resort destination concept unveiled by Wynn Resorts. The organization is comprised of Foxboro residents and is committed to engaging the Town about the potential benefits and issues associated with a mixed-use destination convention hotel and casino.  As a best-in-class operator of resort destinations, Wynn Resorts is capable of delivering thousands of sustainable jobs to the region and creating a lasting revenue stream for the town that provides a secure financial future for Foxboro.

By engaging in positive dialogue about the potential benefits and issues associated with the proposed development and gathering credible, verifiable third-party research regarding the impacts of destination resort casinos (such as the National Gambling Impact Study conducted by a panel of leading academics and experts under the direction on the President, the Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority Leader), town residents will be best able to make an informed decision at a town-wide referendum.

Donna, the Sun Cronicle reported on December 23, 2011 (http://www.thesunchronicle.com/articles/2011/12/23/news/10679133.txt) quote ---------- "At the end of the day, Foxboro deserves a chance to hear all sides of this issue," said Scott Farmelant, spokesman for Jobs for Foxboro, who owns the Mills & Company public relations agency. As of Thursday afternoon, the "Jobs for Foxboro" Facebook page, established on Dec. 13, had 108 "likes," JobsForFoxboro.com was down for maintenance and the @jobsforfoxboro Twitter handle had 96 followers. All are being run by Sage Systems, a provider of "campaign services" that was hired by Wynn Resorts to help with communication efforts in Foxboro. Sage has, in turn, hired Farmelant, who served as a PR consultant to the New England Patriots from 1999 to 2001 - when Gillette stadium was in the process of being approved and built. --------

Fatcow is a domain hosting company. You can pay to hide your ID behind them (or on any host) So instead of being out in the open, they are hiding the name of the person/company that regestered the domain name. Let me ask you, have you met anyone who is a member of the group that is 'Jobs for Foxboro' i.e. one of the organizers?

Billions for Weinburger is what it should be called.

Part of me still thinks this is all a ruse by Kraft to diminish resistance to a bio-tech firm moving into this space. Imagine for a second that Mr. Kraft thought that the abutters would object to pretty much any development to this parcel. How better to get a tenant to move in and be embraced by the abutters than by hanging the worst possible scenario in front of the abutters and then pulling it and sliding in something else. At this point the abutters would embrace anything but a casino and be thanking Mr. Kraft to boot......just a thought

Billionaire PR firms are trying to pose as grass roots efforts. 'Jobs' for Foxboro is a fraud just like Steve Wynn and his casino.
