Wampanoag tribes jockey for position

The Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah) is turning to Facebook to pitch a casino plan for Fall River.

As the state Senate is poised to begin debate of its casino legislation today, the Martha’s Vineyard-based tribe wants state leaders to know it has a plan to bring a casino to 230 acres in Fall River. Aquinnah officials have said their proposed casino would preserve a biotechnology park planned in the city.

“We want to be good partners with the state leaders, the city of Fall River and the people of Massachusetts,” Naomi Carney, chairwoman of the tribe’s gaming corporation, said in a press release. “That’s why we have launched a Facebook page to help keep everyone informed about our proposal and progress.”  Read more at South Coast Today.
