Mohegan Sun: meeting Wednesday with Boston mayor

Mohegan Sun says it’s in talks with Boston Mayor Martin Walsh’s administration, as state gambling regulators on Thursday will again take up whether the city should be named a “host community” for two casino proposals in the state’s eastern region.

A Mohegan Sun spokesperson confirmed the Wednesday meeting, but declined to elaborate further.

A Walsh spokesperson did not immediately confirm the meeting.

A Wynn spokesman said the casino company remains interested in talks with the mayor, but said it does not have a meeting at this time.

Boston’s bid to be named a “host community” for Mohegan Sun’s proposal in Revere and Wynn’s proposal in Everett has been a major roadblock to awarding the eastern region casino license.

The designation would trigger a city referendum on the proposals.
