'Now let's get shovels in the ground!' declared Mayor Domenic Sarno on Tuesday night, thrilled that MGM's $800 million casino plan can move forward after Massachusetts voters defeated a measure to repeal the state's casino law. 'With MGM Springfield moving forward and providing an increase in local resources, my first priority will be to public safety for our continued war on crime,' Sarno said Tuesday night.
